You don't need to have protobuffs installed on the Erlang VM.  I'm saying
that you _shouldn't_ have a protobuffs version globally installed as my
guess is that could be picked up by reltool which is responsible for
building the Riak release.  You will want to uninstall erlang-protobuffs.

This is good, that's what you want in this case.

I'm not sure how but when you run `make rel` it is picking up a different
protobuffs version from somewhere in your environment.  Try doing something
like `sudo find / -name 'protobuffs.beam'` and see what turns up.
