Can't build fuerte in fedora; fails on rosdep

I am following the fedora installation tutorial for fuerte (here) and I got to the part where I run rosdep update, and I get many lines like this:

laser_assembler: No definition of [pcl] for OS [fedora]

For the dependencies:

opencv2 python-qt-bindings pcl ros

Is this a configuration problem on my end, or is it a known issue with ROS on fedora? I'm using Fedora 16, 64-bit.

Fedora does not necessarily have all rosdep rules defined. You may need to contribute some rules.

See this ticket to solve some of the dependency issues.

However fixing rosdep rules will not solve the problem with pcl on Fedora since current standalone release (1.5.1) is not compatible with ROS. You either have to compile pcl by yourself or convert a native Ubuntu DEB package to RPM with alien. Some details are here.
