Problem installing Riak Python client

I am trying to install Riak's python client library using Pip. But it
throws an IOError while installing: IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or
directory: 'protobuf/'. Apparently, a lot of guys are facing the
same problem. The problem is that the latest version of Protobuf (2.4.1)
has moved from / to /python/
There is already an issue raised for Riak:
Any suggestions how to specify correct path of to Pip?
