nft: error while loading shared libraries: libnftnl.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

After compiling nftables and attempting to run nft list tables I received the error:

nft: error while loading shared libraries: libnftnl.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Turns out I needed to run ldconfig in order to fix the error.  I also rebooted prior to running ldconfig but probably didn’t need to.
