hector_navigation on ROS Kinetic

Anyone was able to run hector_navigation on ROS Kinetic?

When I try to compile it I got an error that the costmap_2d package is not install, then I clone ROS Navigation stack. After that, I got the following error:

CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-3.5/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:148 (message): Could NOT find Bullet (missing: BULLET_DYNAMICS_LIBRARY BULLET_COLLISION_LIBRARY BULLET_MATH_LIBRARY BULLET_SOFTBODY_LIBRARY BULLET_INCLUDE_DIR)

As far as I know bullets engine package has been deprecated and ROS navigation stack also has support for ROS Kinetic (version 1.14.2)

As you can see in the in the map_server package of the ROS Navigaton stack repository, it needs the bullet library ( )

How can I get the bullets package to overcome this issue?
