There is no special integration between BFL and ROS, we just pull the
BFL source code and compile it as a library. You can find a nice
getting started guide on the BFL homepage <http://orocos.org/bfl>. To
use BFL from another ROS package, simply add 'bfl' to your manifest,
and you can include the BFL headers you need.
