How do you install actionlib from source in an existing workspace?

I've built my base Kinetic packages as outlined in the wiki, but when I went to run a custom package, I received the error:

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


So I tried to add actionlib to my original workspace source and rebuild by doing:

cd ~/ros_catkin_ws
rosinstall_generator actionlib --rosdistro kinetic --deps | wstool merge -t src -
wstool update -t src -j2 --delete-changed-uris
./src/catkin/bin/catkin_make_isolated --install -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release --install-space /opt/ros/kinetic -j1

However, after rebuilding, rospack list | grep -i actionlib still shows no actionlib package installed.

What am I doing wrong?

Did you source install/setup.bash after building?
