Ok, so this is strange. Try make clean and run with V=1, it might help
to debug this. This could happen if ~/build/linux/vmlinux doesn't
exist, but I assume you double-checked that. It works for me just fine
(Makefile won't do VMLINUX_BTF := assignment, if it's defined through
make invocation, so your change should be a no-op in that regard):

$ make clean
$ make VMLINUX_BTF=~/linux-build/default/vmlinux V=1
...
.output/sbin/bpftool btf dump file ~/linux-build/default/vmlinux
format c > .output/vmlinux.h
...

Wonder what your output looks like?

Yes, it can be handled through VMLINUX_BTF override for selftests. As
I said, this will be a self-contained example in libbpf's Github repo,
so this "in kernel tree" assumption doesn't stand there.
