I'm trying to build on Ubuntu 16.04 but getting the libnl error:

*** WARNING ***
LibNL/nl80211 support was not found. Kismet uses libnl to control...

But 16.04 uses libnl-3 and doesn't have a package for libnl:

# apt-cache search libnl|grep dev
libnl-3-dev - development library and headers for libnl-3
libnl-cli-3-dev - development library and headers for libnl-cli-3
libnl-genl-3-dev - development library and headers for libnl-genl-3
libnl-idiag-3-dev - development library and headers for libnl-genl-3
libnl-nf-3-dev - development library and headers for libnl-nf-3
libnl-route-3-dev - development library and headers for libnl-route-3
libnl-xfrm-3-dev - development library and headers for libnl-xfrm-3
libnlopt-dev - nonlinear optimization library -- development package

Any suggestions to get it built? I'm aiming to get an Ubertooth working so if there is an easier way to do it, happy to go that way instead.
