Here is a snippet from virtualbox-ose's Makefile:

.if ${PORT_OPTIONS:MPYTHON}
USES+=3D          python:2.7
USE_PYTHON=3D     distutils noegginfo noflavors
PYDISTUTILS_PKGNAME=3D    vboxapi
PYDISTUTILS_PKGVERSION=3D 1.0
.else
USES+=3D          python:2.7,build
.endif

Virtualbox itself asks for it.

As an experiment, I switched both lines for python:3.7 and compiled the
port.

The port builds without errors and VirtualBox runs just fine.
