octomap_msgs/OctomapBinary.h: No such file or directory <-- does this file actually exist in that directory? Is the casing correct? (it's not octomapbinary.h, is it?).

Is there a reason you install octomap_mapping from source, and not the binary packages?

You can install them pre-compiled with all dependencies by running sudo apt-get install ros-fuerte-octomap-mapping (fuerte) or sudo apt-get install ros-groovy-octomap-mapping (groovy).

It seems to me that you are either missing a dependency (octomap_msgs) in your ROS_PACKAGE_PATH, or mixing different ROS versions. OctomapBinary.h only exists for fuerte.

If you need a source compile, then you also need to manually download and compile the dependencies, most notably the packages octomap_ros and octomap_msgs. Fuerte versions are at and Groovy versions here:

It looks like the build is failing because it can't find octomap_msgs/OctomapBinary.h. Normally, this would be caused by a missing dependency, so I checked the manifest.xml for this package, and noticed that the octomap_msgs dependency was explicitly disabled.

In reviewing the change history for this file, I found when this was disabled (in r2810 and r2811). The commit message for this change indicates that octomap_msgs should now be installed directly using .deb packages. So, try apt-get install ros-groovy-octomap-msgs first, then re-build your package.

Alternatively, the README file in that package indicates that the most-current package version has moved to a new repository. That version seems to have re-instated the explicit dependency on octomap_msgs. You could try that version, which might work for you out-of-the-box.
