The instructions at fail for me on step 1.7 (build higher level tools). Specifically, the rosdep install -a fails with:

{{{ ERROR: the following packages/stacks could not have their rosdep keys resolved to system dependencies: python_qt_binding: No definition of [ros] for OS [osx] pcl_ros: No definition of [pcl] for OS [osx] }}}

Not everything is working, please take a look at this for how to add homebrew packages so rosdep knows about them. Also have a look here.

I did get pcl_ros to compile but ended up messing things up trying to get some other things working, so I offer no guarantees ... good luck!

I encountered the same problem, so I provided an additional rosdep yaml file and added the specification to the rosdep sources. After running rosdep update the dependencies were satisfied.

$ cat /etc/ros/rosdep/sources.list.d/20-default.list
# os-specific listings first
yaml file://localhost/opt/ros/fuerte/rosdep-extra.yaml osx
yaml osx
yaml gentoo

# generic
gbpdistro fuerte

$ cat /opt/ros/rosdep-extra.yaml
      packages: []
      packages: []

Could you post the link of the packages inside []? It seems like the links were taken out by the wiki page... thanks.
