Bit of a newbie question, but I am trying to build Writer to play around with. I followed the build/installation instructions , but am getting the following error:

CMakeFiles/writer.dir/src/Widgets/TableToolBar.c.o: In function `writer_widgets_table_tool_bar_construct':
/home/cameron/Sites/writer-dev/install/src/Widgets/TableToolBar.c:405: undefined reference to `gtk_widget_set_focus_on_click'
CMakeFiles/writer.dir/src/Widgets/TextToolBar.c.o: In function `writer_widgets_text_tool_bar_setup_ui':

collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
CMakeFiles/writer.dir/build.make:612: recipe for target 'writer' failed
make[2]: *** [writer] Error 1

make[1]: *** [CMakeFiles/writer.dir/all] Error 2
Makefile:160: recipe for target 'all' failed
make: *** [all] Error 2

A bit of googling seems to indicate that this is caused by my GTK3 version (3.18.9-1ubuntu3.1) and my Vala version (0.34.4 0ubuntu1~16.04~valateam1) having some sort of conflict with gtk_widget_set_focus_on_click. What's the best way to resolve this?
