The Virtualbox guest-additions are already available in grml. Just run as 
aptitude update
aptitude install virtualbox-ose-guest-modules-2.6.31-grml (or grml64 if 
use grml64)

It should be enough to just install the provided guest-modules. 

You can also build the guest modules yourself (not recommend), just 
virtualbox-ose-guest-source and kernel headers for your current kernel. 
you can use module-assistent to build the virtualbox guest-additions for 
your current kernel.
