[GNC-dev] Building 3.4 on Mint 18.3

Thanks, I missed the specific installation page and just tried to 
install from the generic dependency page, trying to guess the actual 
package names. I had missed a few, but it looks like that was not the 
issue though.

Turns out that I had to switch from the nouveau graphics driver to the 
proprietary driver, and now it works. So while the updated dependencies 
might be required for other things, they were not actually my issue, but 
it seems a broken graphics driver. Which is not broken with the stock 
gnucash 2.6 that comes with Mint 19.1 Mate.

Something I probably should have seen sooner given that a complete 
system freeze normally points to something in kernel space
