What packages apart from reuleaux can be used for optimal base positioning of a robot for mobile manipulation?

The package reuleaux has issues with compiling in ros-kinetic due to HDF5 error. I was wondering if there is any other packages that also find the optimal base position for mobile manipulation using inverse reachability analysis.

I know of no ROS pkgs (they might exist though), but OpenRAVE does have Inverse Reachability capabilities. The MoveIt Benchmark / Workbench also does something similar, although it doesn't do placement for you, just evaluation of whatever you defined as the position of the robot and a given task.

The HDF5 error in Reuleaux for ROS-kinetic is solved in this issue https://github.com/ros-industrial-con... You can try it now.
