I got the same problem. The only solution I found was to edit
distutils/command/bdist_wininst.py, and in the 'initialize_options'
method I changed the value of self.skip_build to 1. For some strange
reason, using the skip_build command line option of setup.py
bdist_wininst does not work. 

Hope it helps
