Since I do not have easy access to SLES12, would you be able to provide a patch?

I can confirm building guest additions is not working for SLES 12.4. I removed the condition for SLES in line 355 of file src/vboxguest-6.0.0/vboxvideo/vbox_mode.c as mentioned above and building works again. Attached you can find the patch.

I hope this will be fixed in the 6.0 test builds<1> as of revision 128006, hopefully visible in an hour or two. Please confirm so that I know if I can apply the fix to the 5.2 builds as well.

I will assume this is fixed unless you give feedback that it is not. If you try out a test build there is no reason not to keep on using it as long as there is no new release, as it is expected to be as stable as a release build for most purposes and includes bug fixes since the last release.
