Hi Jiri,

This change seems to be breaking the build with the static library for
me. I know you add back $(LIBBPF) later in the Makefile, see at the end
of this email...

Nit: We do not check for a specific bpftool version, we check for a
recent enough libbpf version?

libbpf-devel sounds like a RH/Fedora package name, but other
distributions might have different names (Debian/Ubuntu would go by
libbpf-dev I suppose, although I don't believe such package exists at
the moment). Maybe use a more generic message?

... I believe the order of the libraries is relevant, and it seems the
static libbpf should be passed before the dynamic libs. Here I could fix
the build with the static library on my setup by prepending the library
path instead, like this:

LIBS := $(LIBBPF) $(LIBS)

On the plus side, all build attempts from
tools/testing/selftests/bpf/test_bpftool_build.sh pass successfully on
my setup with dynamic linking from your branch.

Thanks,
