Missing depend on boost #24

My most recent Fedora builds of cpp_common [1] are not installing the boost development libraries as they did about 2 weeks ago. I don't see any changes to cpp_common that would have triggered this, so it must have been an upstream package that changed its deps or something like that.

I can't see any reason not to have cpp_common depend on boost, as it references boost headers [2].

I can confirm this on an f20 system without boost-devel by running:

mkdir -p ~/boost_test_ws/src
cd ~/boost_test_ws
rosinstall_generator --deps --tar --rosdistro indigo cpp_common > src/.rosinstall
wstool update -t src
rosdep install --from-path src --ignore-src

...and finding that boost-devel is not installed as it should be.

I have confirmed that adding boost as a run and build dependency fixes things [3] [4], but I'm not sure what caused this to begin with, so I can only suggest that as a possible fix.

Before the ROS package console_bridge was bringing in the boost dependency transitively. Since roscpp_core now uses the system package of console_bridge boost is not exposed as a transitive dependency anymore.

Anyway the packages in roscpp_core should state their direct dependencies explicitly anyway and not rely on transitive dependencies for this. Please see PR #25 for the proposed fix.
