rospack will add that directory automatically if it's present.  E.g.,

$ rospack cflags-only-I std_msgs

So as long as you use rospack to get the build flags (which is what
rosbuild does), everything should work.  Are you parsing manifests by
hand, by any chance?

We removed the auto-generated directories from manifests because it
was a constant source of bugs.
