Some symbolic links are broken in the source code

*vrep main directory*/programming/ros_stacks/vrep/vrep_plugin/src/v_repLib.cpp
*vrep main directory*/programming/ros_stacks/vrep/vrep_plugin/include/v_repConst.h
*vrep main directory*/programming/ros_stacks/vrep/vrep_plugin/include/v_repLib.h

are symbolic links that point to absolute paths such as /home/marc/Documents/... etc. so it prevents you from compiling vrep_plugin. Instead, they should point to:

../../../../common/v_repLib.cpp
../../../../include/v_repConst.h
../../../../include/v_repLib.h

You are right, however:

People usually compile all their stacks from a very specific location (e.g. ROS_WORKSPACE folder). So, even with relative links, they would break. You have to manually create those links. This is explained in the ROS tutorial.

Cheers
