initial version

Instead of getting the source code and building it by yourself, you can download the binaries i.e. hector_slam package itself for your ROS distribution. You can use command

sudo apt-get install ros-your_ros_dist_name-hector-slam

for eg. in case of ros indigo you can use command

sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-hector-slam

this will download and install all the necessary packages for hector slam.
