Actually, the information provided in comment #0 is sufficient. I can reproduce the bug.

Just to confirm, does the error still happen if you set LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8 ?

I have the same issue with a different python package
  dev-python/python-mpd-0.5.1
but same python version
  dev-lang/python-3.2.3-r2



I can confirm that setting LC_ALL helps, just setting LC_CTYPE was not sufficient here.  I put the following into /etc/paludis/bashrc to make the build work temporarily:
case "${CATEGORY}/${PN}" in
	*/python-mpd)   LC_ALL="de_DE.UTF-8" ;;
esac



Reinstalling python did not help, so I searched bugs.g.o with comment:ascii.py and stumbled upon this bug.  The error message for python.mpd is similar:

Comment 5 Lee Trager 2013-04-08 07:36:09 UTC
Setting LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8 fixed it for me. I'm kind of confused because thats what my system is set for anyway.
Comment 6 Robert Golding 2013-08-28 10:35:01 UTC
I had this same emerge fail error with four packages in Gnome-3:-
   gnome-core-apps
   gnome-terminal
   gnome-shell
   gnome-screensaver

After remerging python and perl along with base-unicode not fixing it I was glad to find this fix here.

Setting LC_CTYPE=en_AU.UTF-8 did the trick nicely.
