So, the cause of the failure is clear enough
from the build log.



It is weird to check only lz4c.
If CONFIG_KERNEL_LZO is enabled, but lzop is not installed,
I see this log

LZO arch/x86/boot/compressed/vmlinux.bin.lzo
/bin/sh: 1: lzop: not found

It is still clear what to do, though.

Is it necessary to check this earlier?

If you get this error, you just need to install the tool.
Then, you can re-run the incremental build.


BTW, this patch has a drawback.

[1] Enable CONFIG_KERNEL_LZ4 on the system
without lz4c installed

[2] Run 'make' and you will get the error
"lz4 tool not found on this system but CONFIG_KERNEL_LZ4 enabled"

[3] Run 'make menuconfig' and
switch from CONFIG_KERNEL_LZ4 to CONFIG_KERNEL_GZIP

[4] Run 'make' and you will still get the same error
even after you have chosen to use GZIP instead of LZ4.
