Ubuntu 16.04 (amd64 in my case) has libzstd-dev 0.5.1-1. It looks like master uses some libzstd symbols that are newer than that. See attached logs.

Looking at the zstd history, it seems like ZSTD_CStream (which seems to be part of a streaming compression API that the consensus compression code uses) is new in zstd-1.1? Also ZSTD_VERSION_STRING looks like it is new in 0.6.1.

We should probably check for a minimum version (1.1?) at configure time.

This is probably relevant to deciding what new compression libraries to support for Tor Browser builds.

FWIW: We build Tor Browser for Linux on Debian Wheezy (oldstable right now) to allow CentOS 6 users to have a Tor Browser as well (we already need to jump through some hoops for that to make that happen). Looking at the available package version it seems that it only got recently added to Debian. There is no zstd related package in Debian stable (or oldstable for that matter) right now. The upcoming stable (Stretch) has 1.1.2.
