Hi,
 I've attached a patch that will allow pysnmp2 to install cleanly. However, this is clearly not the 'correct' long term fix. The hope is that this will be useful to someone else who finds this bug and needs to install pysnmp2 without waiting for the longterm fix. The underlying issue seems to be that pysnmp2 does not install under /usr/share/pyshared/pysnmp/v2 as the pysnmp-common seems to expect.
