I'm trying to compile groovy from source on my Ubuntu 12.04.1 to help me understand catkin better and also so I can compile on my BeagleBone later. I followed the instructions on

When I run:

$ ./src/catkin/bin/catkin_make_isolated --install

I get:

==> make -j4 -l4 in '/home/sameer/ros_catkin_ws/build_isolated/pcl'

<== Failed to process package 'pcl': 
  Command '/home/sameer/ros_catkin_ws/install_isolated/ make -j4 -l4' returned non-zero exit status 2

Reproduce this error by running:
==> /home/sameer/ros_catkin_ws/install_isolated/ make -j4 -l4

Command failed, exiting.
