If you still want to build from the source, use some git-fu:

git clone
cd riak
#make sure you have all the latest branches and tags
git fetch --all
#list all tags
#git tag -l
#checkout the latest stable (riak-0.14.2, i believe)
git checkout riak-0.14.2

Now you've rolled back the clock to the latest stable (as of this
writing) and can compile to your hearts content.
