Is there a simple method to invoke catkin so that it only configures CMake, but does not invoke make?

Right now my current solution is to have make do a dry-run:

catkin_make --make-args -n

However, this occasionally results in errors. (Will post them next time I run into them)

After invoking catkin_init_workspace (which creates a toplevel CMakeLists.txt file) you can just use standard cmake.

Ah, thanks! To make sure I have it right, you would just to `catkin_ws/build/` and invoke `cmake ../src/CMakeLists.txt`?
