ROS-Indigo installation on Raspberry-Pi failes on "rosmake" package

Hello ROS community,

I'm installing ROS on a Raspberry-Pi 2, I've followed this guide closely to install ROS on Jessie.

On Section 3.3 - "Building the catkin workspace":
Running the first command - "Invoke catkin_make_isolated":

sudo ./src/catkin/bin/catkin_make_isolated --install -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release --install-space /opt/ros/indigo

The building process begins installing the packages (48 of them), but on package 21 - which is the 'rosmake' package, it fails, providing the following error message:

==> Processing catkin package: 'rosmake'
==> Building with env: '/opt/ros/indigo/'
Makefile exists, skipping explicit cmake invocation...
==> make cmake_check_build_system in '/home/pi/ros_catkin_ws/build_isolated/rosmake'
make: * No rule to make target 'cmake_check_build_system'. Stop.
<== Failed to process package 'rosmake':
Command '['/opt/ros/indigo/', 'make', 'cmake_check_build_system']' returned non-zero exit status 2

Reproduce this error by running: ==> cd /home/pi/ros_catkin_ws/build_isolated/rosmake && /opt/ros/indigo/ make cmake_check_build_system

Command failed, exiting.

I've tried building with the -j2 option, just in case, although most likely it's not related to my problem.

What can I do about it ? There don't seem to be any records of this problem on any forums etc., from what I've seen through a quick search..

Thanks in advance for any suggestions and feedback.
