My source directory contains my testPCD.cpp program and PCL directory with pcl 1.7.2 called pcl-pcl-1.7.2. This was unziped here from tar file from pclcloud home page for 1.7.2 source. I will download and compile ros dependent source as needed but first I need to get catkin_make to find 1.7.2.

This is the error I get from running catkin_make

  Could not find a configuration file for package "PCL" that is compatible
  with requested version "1.7.2".

  The following configuration files were considered but not accepted:

    /usr/share/pcl-1.7/PCLConfig.cmake, version: 1.7.1

CMakeList file from my testPCD project dir is as follows ,removed some things so as not too bulky for listing here

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.8.3)

find_package(catkin REQUIRED COMPONENTS

## System dependencies are found with CMake's conventions
find_package(Boost REQUIRED COMPONENTS system)
find_package(PCL 1.7.2 REQUIRED)

  DEPENDS boost

## Build ##

 include_directories(include ${catkin_INCLUDE_DIRS} ${catkin_INCLUDE_DIRS} ${PCL_INCLUDE_DIRS})
 add_executable(testPCD src/testPCD.cpp)

 target_link_libraries(testPCD ${catkin_LIBRARIES}  ${Boost_LIBRARIES} ${PCL_LIBRARY_DIRS})

If you change the version of PCL you will need to compile everything that depends on it from source. Please edit your question to show us how to everything you're doing so we can try to reproduce your problem.

I had made an error in installation effectively failing to run install which I am correcting and hopefully that will move me forward. Thanks for reviewing my question.
