Subject[PATCH 27/40] perf jvmti: Fix linker error when libelf config is disabled
From: Sudeep Holla <>

When libelf is disabled in the configuration, we get the following
linker error:

ld: cannot find -lelf
Makefile.perf:515: recipe for target '' failed

Jiri pointed out that both librt and libelf are not really required. So
this patch fixes the linker error by getting rid of unwanted libraries
in the linker stage.
