Python 2.7.4-2ubuntu3.1 aborts Waf due to encoding

Bug Description

Having enabled "proposed" updates on Ubuntu Raring I suddenly got this building Midori:

  File "./waf", line 2
SyntaxError: Non-ASCII character '\xef' in file ./waf on line 2, but no encoding declared; see for details

The work-around was to downgrade from the aforementioned update:
2.7.4-2ubuntu3.1 => 2.7.4-2ubuntu3

Not sure yet what to do but I will say this is reasonably urgent and we have other issues with Waf - so this may contribute to making the move to cmake sooner.
