Compiling Solarus-Quest-Editor on Ubuntu 15.04 hangs

I downloaded solarus source code, resolved dependancies, and compiled it.  Then I ran the sample quest that is packaged with the source.

I want to create my own quest, so I downloaded the source for solarus quest editor from github.  After resolving dependancies I started the complle with make.  The message "Generating solarus_editor_fr.qm" is the lastline displayed on the screen. The terminal window is not frozen, but the compile has been at this point for over 5 hours.

Is there any way to see more detail of what make is actually doing at this point?

I have no idea. Did you install the following packages for Qt?
sudo apt-get install qtbase5-dev qttools5-dev qttools5-dev-tools

I missed qttools5-dev-tools.  I must have overlooked an error message when installing  packages.  I was also looking at the tutorials, but they al sem to be in French.  Is there a link to an English language tutorial? I had been at work all day then spent about 5 hours troubleshoting the install before I began looking for tutorials.
The compiler is now progressing nicely. --- Compiler completed, tested solarus-quest-editor, it is working nicely... Now to find a tutorial...

Thank you,
