I have a repo install of Groovy on Xubuntu 12.04.1.

nuno@ubuntu:~$ source /opt/ros/groovy/setup.bash 
nuno@ubuntu:~$ mkdir -p catkin_ws/src
nuno@ubuntu:~$ cd catkin_ws/

The workspace is created ok, but then if I add a package it doens't build.

nuno@ubuntu:~/catkin_ws$ cd src/
    nuno@ubuntu:~/catkin_ws/src$ catkin_create_pkg beginner_tutorials std_msgs rospy roscpp
    Created file beginner_tutorials/CMakeLists.txt

I run into this while trying to compile some tutorial packages, but I thinks this empty package is enough to demonstrate the issue.

You are right, this is a bug. catkin_make does not trigger a re-build when new packages are added to src.

Created report at: https://github.com/ros/catkin/issues/290

In the meantime, you can go into the build folder and run

$ cmake .

The output you posted seems ok to me - you have nothing to build in your package. If none of source/msg/srv files don't get built in tutorials like following, that's a problem.

Just listing a couple of tutorials that introduce how to build your files:

Creating msg / srv

Writing a Simple Publisher and Subscriber (C++)
