Yeah, rosmake doesn't take --rosdep- options any more.  rosinstall is
being updated to not pass them to rosmake.  In the meantime, you can
work around it by passing '-n' to rosinstall (to make it not to the
bootstrap build).  Then you should run rosdep separately (e.g.,
'rosdep -a -y'), before rosmake.  That's what our new devel_fuerte
builds are doing, and they're mostly happy

Looks like it's up-to-date in shadow-fixed, but the latest one hasn't
been pushed public yet (http://www.ros.org/debbuild/fuerte.html).  I
recommend switching to shadow-fixed (in
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list, replace '/ros/' with
'/ros-shadow-fixed/', and apt-get update).  That repo generally has
newer stuff.  You may sometimes need to switch back to the public ros
repo, e.g., when a new debbuild gets kicked off (because it
invalidates the contents of shadow-fixed for up to 10 hours).
