    you need libaudio. How to get it depends on your distro. – Jakuje Jan 31 '16 at 12:47

On Ubuntu/Mint. You should be able to get libaudio using:

apt-get install libaudio-dev

This message tells you that the linker tries to find the file libaudio.so, either in the well known pathes ( might differ on distros ) /lib, /lib64, /usr/lib, /usr/lib64.
You also can tell the linker to search in other pathes with the LIBRARY_PATH environment variable. And the library has to be installed somewhere.
