Subject[PATCH v4 0/6] Support perf -vv
Date
We keep having bug reports that when users build perf on their own,
but they don't install some needed libraries such as libelf,
libbfd/libibery.

The perf can build, but it is missing important functionality. And
users may complain that perf has issue or bug.

This patch-set support to print the status of compiled-in libraries.

Once users think perf missing some functionality, it should be very
easy for them to check the libraries status.

For example:

$ ./perf version --build-options
or
./perf --version --build-options
or
./perf -v --build-options
or
./perf -vv

perf version 4.13.rc5.g6727c5

1. Also print the macro name. That would make it easier
to grep around in the source looking for where code
related a particular features is located.
