Small addition:
Make sure you have no _old_ CMakeLists.txt lingering around in your
metapackages, otherwise catkin might refuse to build.
That happened to me, because I used catkin_create_pkg and forgot to remove
the automatically created CMakeLists.txt. The old catkin version just
ignores them. That's why it remained unnoticed so far.

And after all the bashing on catkin:
Thanks for the hard work, build team and all contributors!
