Using MySQL 4.1.0 and above forces PhpMyAdmin to use UTF-8 codepage during operations with databases.
This is hard coded in PhpMyAdmin (libraries/database_interface.lib.php):

if (PMA_MYSQL_INT_VERSION >= 40100) {
// If $lang is defined and we are on MySQL >= 4.1.x,
// we auto-switch the lang to its UTF-8 version

So there are only UTF-8 encodings are available.
