I have a package that depends on a message package called stdr_msgs. (stdr_msgs contains only messages). Here is the begining of the corresponding CMakeLists.txt:

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.8.3)

find_package(catkin REQUIRED COMPONENTS
  roscpp rosbag_storage urdf kdl_parser tf2_ros tf2_kdl
  stdr_msgs stdr_lib blf localize stdr_velodyne ladybug_playback

  INCLUDE_DIRS include
  CATKIN_DEPENDS roscpp rosbag_storage urdf kdl_parser tf2_ros tf2_kdl
    stdr_msgs stdr_lib blf localize stdr_velodyne ladybug_playback

include_directories(include ${catkin_INCLUDE_DIRS})

target_link_libraries(${PROJECT_NAME} ${catkin_LIBRARIES})
add_dependencies(${PROJECT_NAME} ${catkin_EXPORTED_TARGETS})

Note that find_package searches for stdr_msgs and that the library depends on catkin_EXPORTED_TARGETS. This follows the guidelines in

However, from time to time, the build fails because a header file from one of the messages in stdr_msgs is not found. It fails while compiling one of the cpp files from the library in this package.

Am I missing something?

EDIT: I printed the catkin_EXPORTED_TARGETS. It contained the stdr_msgs message generation targets. The list is long, it has 3842 elements from the following packages: actionlib, actionlib_msgs, bond, diagnostic_msgs, driver_base, dynamic_reconfigure, geometry_msgs, nav_msgs, nodelet, pcl_msgs, roscpp, rosgraph_msgs, sensor_msgs, std_msgs, stdr_msgs, tf2_msgs, tf, topic_tools, velodyne_msgs

Did you print out the contents of catkin_EXPORTED_TARGETS? Was the target for stdr_msgs in there?

yes, the 3 message generation targets (lisp, py, cpp) for stdr_msgs were there

Hmm, not sure, that looks like it should work to me. Are you using catkin_make?

I'm using catkin_make. Well, I'll keep digging and eventually report here. Not easy to troubleshoot thought because it does not happen all the time and the testing cycle is long (lots of packages to recompile)
