I saw a similar error with Python 3.6 on a MIPS (32-bit - mipsisa32r2el-axis-linux-gnu) platform, but during interpreter startup, not install (perhaps because it was cross-compiled so install on the host doesn't run the target Python). It was due to building with a hard-float compiler when soft-float was needed (GCC 6.3.0, worked with --with-float=soft). Full error:

Fatal Python error: Py_Initialize: Unable to get the locale encoding
