I'm trying to build a windows binary package on Linux. This usually
works fine -- as long as the package description doesn't contain
unicode. If it *contains* unicode it will somehow internally use MBCS
So if someone fixes windows binary package building on non-windows
platforms to not use MBCS encoding this is fine with me. But maybe the
easier way out here is to include that codec on all platforms.

(and don't tell me I have to install windows for building a windows
binary package :-)

Thanks, Ralf
