Hi Anand,

The brew install actually gives you compiled code, and no makefile. In addition, the startup scripts are slightly different that when installing from source.

I recently answered the same question on StackOverflow which should point you in the right direction:

Basically, you need to manually make copies of the /usr/local/Cellar/riak directory and edit the files accordingly, including the startup scripts themselves. 

Please let us know if you have additional questions!
