This is a problem related to the python setup tools and string encoding. To 
fix it:

 - Open the file "setup.py" in swig/python/.
 - Go to line 141: self.library_dirs.append(os.path.join(self.gdaldir,'lib'))
 -  Add the following line just below the the line 141:
self.library_dirs = [path.encode("utf-8",'ignore') for path in 
 -  Save and compile/install
