Modifying gazebo_ros_pkgs to build a custom version of Gazebo

Hei guys, I am not sure where to modify gazebo_ros_pkgs in order to have my modified version of Gazebo built. As far as I got I see that there is a file gazebo_ros_pkgs/gazebo_dev/cmake/gazebo_dev-extras.cmake that uses some environment variables in order to add the source files.

# The following lines will tell catkin to add the Gazebo directories and libraries to the
# respective catkin_* cmake variables.

Is that it? If so do I just need to set those up, dowload gazebo_ros_pkgs and then build the workspace?

I managed to use a second version of Gazebo that I manually installed following the instructions and then adding the path to the installed library to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable. The added path was /usr/local/lib like so: LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/lical/lib from my .bashrc file or locally in the console. If there are any problems download also gazebo_ros_pkgs and compile it from a workspace. That seems to fix my problems.
