Can you make sure that your sources are all up to date, and you don't have old CMakeCaches lying around? catkin/bin/em was removed recently, and running the install commands from scratch in a temp directory worked for me.

At the time I cleaned the entire build (removed all of /opt/ros/fuerte and ~/ros-underlay) and re-performed all of the instructions with the same result.

Just go to the folder with
cd /home/nyx/ros-underlay/catkin/bin
than create the folder
mkdir em
and run the installation again

This workaround works (I created a file called 'em' instead of a folder), but doesn't explain the actual cause or provide a real fix.
