Compile Virtualbox 6.0.* Guest Additions for Windows

Compilation of Guest Additions is getting stuck with the following error (formatted for readability):

__guard_fids_table is a part of Microsoft anti-malware Control Flow Guard API, introduced in Windows 8.1. As far as I know, it requires Visual C++ version 14.0 (which is MSVS 2015 Update 3), however, it's still lack of good documentation of this API, so I'm not 100% sure. Also I'm not sure, is that bug of build system or it's real usage of Control Flow Guard API in addition to Hardening, and some additional configuration required.
