Of those two things we only support "pip install ." - in part because
you have much less control over mirrors, proxies and inferior SSL
support with 'python setup.py install'.

http://docs.openstack.org/developer/pbr/ "Note that we don’t support
the easy_install aspects of setuptools: while we depend on
setup_requires, for any install_requires we recommend that they be
installed prior to running setup.py install - either by hand, or by
using an install tool such as pip."

As pip doesn't yet support setup_requires itself, this will currently
need a manual 'sudo pip install pbr' beforehand :/
