when you run cpython/Mac/BuildScript/build-installer.py with python 3.9.0 it failed with the following error
 from plistlib import Plist
ImportError: cannot import name 'Plist' from 'plistlib'

Thanks for the report. There were several issues, including this one, when trying to run build-installer.py under current versions of Python 3.  These have been fixed in the version of build-installer.py to be released with 3.9.0b4, 3.8.4, and 3.7.8.
