catkin_make ignores dependencies?

I'm not sure what's causing this but catkin_make ignores dependencies for one or two of my packages.

The package x_competitor_layer depends on the message generation of x_eth_interface. I've added this dependency in

  • package.xml (build_depend and run_depend)
  • CMakeLists.txt (x_eth_interface in find_package as well as x_eth_interface_generate_messages in add_dependencies)

But still catkin_make doesn't build x_eth_interface_generate_messages first and keeps complaining about a missing header file. I can solve this problem manually by calling catkin_make x_eth_interface_generate_messages first. But catkin should be able to solve it on its own, shouldn't it?

So what could possibly have gone wrong? What might be missing?

Thanks guys!

Cheers, Hendrik
