Because you don't need one. Binary data is merely a stream of 8-bit chars with no encoding.

Look at the documentation for g_io_channel_write_chars and you will find an admittedly cryptic reference to g_io_channel_set_encoding. The documentation for that states:

          The encoding NULL is safe to use with binary data.

I think this answers your question.
