OK it does work. I received an error message ("no linux / solaris" something similar to that) so I had assumed it would not work. After reboot the guest (PC-BSD), I tried it and at least Copy & Paste is working. I will reboot again and keep my fingers crossed : - ).

After 2nd reboot Copy & Paste still works in PC-BSD. Looked for the Guest Additions log files but cannot find them. ?.

It seems that PCbsd 9 now has their form of guest additions working, but you must enable the video using their control panel.
