Ahh that makes sense.  Sorry I looked at master which was catkinized.  Yes,
that error will occur if you are setting a package dependency outside of
the declared stack dependencies.  rostest is in the ros_comm stack not the
ros stack.  If you depend on packages in the ros "stack/metapackage" you
need to have it in your stack.xml, with the packages in your manifest.  The
ros dependency brings in most of the build system so it's basically
required, though you can improperly depend on dependencies like ros_comm to
bring it in for you.
