New submission from Dan <malantrinu at gmail.com>:
On Windows, distutils doesn't correctly read UTF-8 content from config files (setup.cfg).
Seems like the issue is located on the line reading the files via the ConfigParser; simply adding 'encoding="UTF-8"' as argument fixes the problem for me: https://github.com/python/cpython/pull/4727
On Linux it seems to be working fine.
