we still need to build two versions of PCL once this happens
(admittedly, we could do this from within the same source package, I
suppose), or will the Fedora system PCL be built against ROS?

working since last I checked in.
So far, the biggest block has been the fact that rviz uses a Ogre module
that Fedora doesn't have (because that module depends on NVIDIA's
non-free cg toolkit). I patched out the place where rviz uses the
module, and things _seem_ to work fine without it, but I'm not really
sure how rviz works so I can't be sure.
Aside from that, I finished all the deps needed for the nxt stack, then
