Description

Hi,

I come across a compilation problem for virtualbox svn with Py_NewReference under Arch Linux and python 3.9.

/build/virtualbox-svn/src/VirtualBox/src/libs/xpcom18a4/python/src/PyIID.cpp: In constructor ‘Py_nsIID::Py_nsIID(const nsIID&)’:

I note that there are discussions about removing _Py_NewReference from public API ( https://bugs.python.org/issue40989). Maybe it is relevant?

Attached is the full log.
