Error decoding config in extract_wininst_cfg #114
In pull request 20, Sascha suggests there are cases where easy_install will fail to install a bdist_wininst if the config for that build has non-ascii characters. Investigating the bdist_wininst command, I found that the command uses 'mbcs' for file encoding.
I believe easy_install should use getfilesystemencoding for good compatibility on Windows a best-effort fallback on other operating systems.
