FUERTE on ubuntu 12.04 and using rosbuild

I am encountering this error while compiling the octomap pkg

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:23 (find_package): By not providing "Findnodelet.cmake" in CMAKE_MODULE_PATH this project has asked CMake to find a package configuration file provided by "nodelet", but CMake did not find one.

Could not find a package configuration file provided by "nodelet" with any
of the following names:


Add the installation prefix of "nodelet" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set
"nodelet_DIR" to a directory containing one of the above files.  If
"nodelet" provides a separate development package or SDK, be sure it has
been installed.

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred! See also "/home/sai/fuerte_workspace/octomap_mapping/trunk/octomap_server/build/CMakeFiles/CMakeOutput.log".

Where are you building octomap_server from (which source repository, which version)? And why not simply install the debian package "ros-fuerte-octomap-mapping"?
