Notes on Source compile a.k.a. Roll-your-own PCL Libraries

Here's what I did to compile my own version of the Point Cloud Library.

arwillis@visionlab16-pc:~$ mkdir pcl-1.8
arwillis@visionlab16-pc:~$ cd pcl-1.8
arwillis@visionlab16-pc:~/pcl-1.8$ git clone

arwillis@visionlab16-pc:~/pcl-1.8$ mkdir release
arwillis@visionlab16-pc:~/pcl-1.8$ cd release
arwillis@visionlab16-pc:~/pcl-1.8/release$ cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=../dist ../pcl
arwillis@visionlab16-pc:~/pcl-1.8/release$ make -j4
arwillis@visionlab16-pc:~/pcl-1.8/release$ make -j4
arwillis@visionlab16-pc:~/pcl-1.8/release$ make install

I had to run the make function twice as this error occurred on my first run of make.

arwillis@visionlab16-pc:~/pcl-1.8/release$ make -j4

Please submit a full bug report,
with preprocessed source if appropriate.
See <file:///usr/share/doc/gcc-4.8/README.Bugs> for instructions.
The bug is not reproducible, so it is likely a hardware or OS problem.
make[2]: *** [filters/CMakeFiles/pcl_filters.dir/src/voxel_grid_label.cpp.o] Error 1

make: *** [all] Error 2
arwillis@visionlab16-pc:~/pcl-1.8/release$ make -j4

Note that it took my computer a VERY long time (2 hrs+) to compile the library. I believe this is largely due to the Release option which builds the libraries with all possible optimizations / efficiencies enabled for the compilers.
