Yabause 0.9.15 and (K) Ubuntu 18.10

I own a Sega Saturn which I did not bring to the US. I really do not want to mess around with PAL/NTSC and the power adapter.
Luckily there is a great emulator for that old gaming console: Yabause.

Ubuntu and its variants ship Yabause 0.9.14. Since 2016 0.9.15 is out and it has several bug fixes which are listed in the changelog.

I decided to build it from the source code. That required a few adjustments and I am writing them down more or less for myself for future reference.

The source code can be downloaded from here.Extract archive and create build directory

Extract archive and create build directory:
cd Downloads
tar xvf ~/Downloads/yabause-0.9.15.tar.gz
cd yabause-0.9.15
mkdir build
cd build
Install dependencies:
sudo apt install freeglut3-dev libglew-dev libopenal-dev qtbase5-dev qtmultimedia5-dev cmake cmake-gui libqt5multimedia5 libqt5gamepad5-dev 

Note that I might be missing some here that were already installed on my system but might not be installed on yours. If you encounter errors I am happy to help out in the comments.

Add missing includes to header files:

Line 25 of ../src/qt/ui/UICheats.h add
#include <QButtonGroup>

Line 23 of ../src/qt/ui/UICheats.h add
#include <QButtonGroup>

Line 25 of ../src/qt/ui/UIHexInput.h add
#include <QValidator>
Click configure and generate. This is where missing libraries show up.
Run cmake with options (otherwise linking will fail)  and qt:
Run make and install: 
sudo make install
