Ian, it seems that you're trying to hack something by copy-pasting 
libraries into some directories. This is not at all the way ROS is meant 
to be used, and this is not a very maintainable solution.

You should rather add the right dependencies in your manifest to and let 
ROS make the linking correctly. In particular, you certainly want to add 
<depend package="roscpp"/> to your manifest file.
