How to set build order/dependencies

In my workspace I have created 3 packages - 2 nodes and a library. I use catkin_make to build, however it compiles the packages alphabetically; the nodes first then the library. I get compiler errors because the library isn't built yet


make[2]: * No rule to make target /catkin_ws/devel/lib/', needed bycatkin_ws/devel/lib/mrls_laser_range_finder/mrls_laser_range_finder_node'. Stop

I can compile everything if I manually make the library first, eg.. catkin_make mrls_lib

I've added the library package to find_package() in CMakeLists.txt. Have I missed something?

Do you have a package dependency in the package.xml?

Ah ha! That was it. The <build_depend> tag.
