[Distutils] distutils.core.setup --install-script option in Python 2.6 ?

I have just upgraded from Python 2.5 to 2.6.4 (MS Windows XP service 
pack 3).

My setup.py scripts (based on distutils.core.setup) no longer work with 
the --install-script option.  Here is the error:

    * error: option --install-script not recognized

The above error occurs when passing either bdist_wininst or bdist_msi 
parameters to the setup.py scripts.

I have been unable to locate any on-line mention of this option not 
being supported.

I apologize for missing something obvious here, but I am stuck.

Thanks in advance for your feedback.
