Running 'rosmake -a -t' I get some test failures attributed to 'Test Fixture Nodes ['xxx'] failed to launch. How can I determine what's wrong and fix it?

An abbreviated example:

[robot_pose_ekf.rostest__test_test_robot_pose_ekf_zero_covariance/testtest_robot_pose_ekf][FAILURE] Test Fixture Nodes ['rosbag'] failed to launch <snip> PACKAGES: * robot_pose_ekf

robot_pose_ekf requires rosbag to run it's tests, however it's likely that you either do not have rosbag installed or it's not compiled prior to the tests attempting to run.
