Hi Josh,

I didn't think that rosinstall compiled anything, but now that you
mention, it seems pretty obvious that it must compile some of the most
basic utilities (i.e. roscd, rosmake, etc). Am I wrong?

And in case those are compiled by rosinstall, which would be the best
way to compile them if you specify "--nobuild" option? I can see there's
an "--update" option for rosinstall, would this be the way?
