When you build with `--build-tests`, the `BUILD_TESTING` cmake option is set to true.

>From looking at your project, I think you are only appending the target to the list of message targets if `BUILD_TESTING` is true:

That might explain why it's only failing when you build with `--build-testing`

As for why it's failing, [the documentation for `add_custom_target`](https://cmake.org/cmake/help/v3.5/command/add_custom_target.html) says that `add_dependencies()` should be used instead of `DEPENDS` if you're looking to add a dependency on another target, which looks to be your case with `ros2cs_message_generator` - not sure if that helps
