I fixed it in the script I use to generate the PKGBUILDs.

While archlinux only distinguishes depends and makedepends ("*only* required to build the software"), ros uses <exec_depend>, <build_depend> AND <build_export_depend>:

catkin build_depends AND build_export_depends on empy, saying "if you build_depend on catkin, you also build_depend on empy". So as far as catkin is concerned, there is no "exec dependency" on empy.

Now, the official python catkin_pkg implementation does
run_depends = []
[run_depends.append(deepcopy(d)) for d in self.exec_depends + self.build_export_depends if d not in run_depends]

Which the PKGBUILD generation script relies on ... go figure ...

I now simply remove makedepends if they are already in depends.

python2-empy is duplicated in makedepends and depends. Please remove it from makedepends array in PKGBUILD. Thanks.
