I downloaded the sources for python 3.8.8 (not tested with Python3.9.2. so far)and compiled it 
with enabled-optimisations parameter on a fresh Ubuntu 20.04 machine.

Beside the test_ssl error (there is an existing workaround, but still not happy with that one tbh) I could solve, the test "test_webbrowser" fails and I don't know how to handle that one.

ERROR: test_synthesize(test_webbrowser.ImportTest)
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "Path/Python-3.8.8/Lib/test/", line 299, in test_synthesize
File "Path/Python-3.8.8/Lib/", line 65, in get 
    raise Error("could not locate runnable browser")
webbrowser.Error: could not locate runnable browser
