hi,
we check for a version that has the latest exported function
that bpftool needs, which is currently libbpf_netlink_open

please check the '#ifdef BPFTOOL' in feature/test-libbpf.c

it's like that because there's currently no support to check
for particular library version in the build/features framework

I'll make that comment more clear

sure, actually in perf we use both package names like:

Error: No libbpf devel library found, please install libbpf-devel or libbpf-dev.

or we can go with generic message:

Error: No libbpf devel library found, please install.

could you please paste the build error? I don't see any on Fedora,
anyway I can make the change you're proposing

cool, had no idea there was such test ;-)
