If distutils.commands.bdist_wininst.bdist_wininst.get_inidata returns a unicode string (which is always the case in 3.x and can happen in 2.x if if you pass a unicode object as one setup argument), bdist_wininst will try to use the MBCS codec, which is not available on non-Windows OSes (see http://docs.python.org/dev/library/codecs#module-encodings.mbcs).

If someone wants to make a patch, here are some guidelines: http://wiki.python.org/moin/Distutils/FixingBugs
