The fix shall go to

https://github.com/python/cpython/blob/2812d3d99287c50bab99625d7240bcf1c2e32369/Lib/distutils/dist.py#L406

where `parser.read(filename)`

shall be changed to `parser.read(filename, encoding="utf-8")`

This assumes that the setup.cfg shall be UTF-8 encoded what I thing is correct assumption.

Alternative assumptions are (and I do not find them good):

- assume the file is encoded as current console is (this is not deterministic and is direct cause of this issue)
- let user to specify the encoding somewhere around (this requires extra step and does not bring any value)
