Comment #29 on issue 66 by cannot install using easy_install

I'd also like to see this fixed. I played around and found that with the following file in the base of the tarball everything (at least with our buildout) works fine.

Basically it creates a that chdirs to the subdirectory and repeats the command. With this buildout had no problem installing it.

file: protobuf-2.4.0a/
--- cut ---
import os
import sys
import subprocess

os.chdir( os.path.join(os.path.dirname(sys.argv[0]),'python') )['python', ''] + sys.argv[1:])
