Subject[RFC PATCH] perf tools: Fix cross compile for ARM64
Currently when cross compiling perf tool for ARM64 on my x86 machine I get
this error:
arch/arm64/util/sym-handling.c:9:10: fatal error: gelf.h: No such file or directory
#include <gelf.h>

For the build, libelf is reported off:
Auto-detecting system features:
... libelf: [ OFF ]

Indeed, test-libelf is not built successfully:
more ./build/feature/test-libelf.make.output
test-libelf.c:2:10: fatal error: libelf.h: No such file or directory
#include <libelf.h>
compilation terminated.

I have no such problems natively compiling on ARM64, and I did not
previously have this issue for cross compiling. Fix by relocating
the gelf.h include.

I marked this as RFC as I am suspicious that I have seen no other
reports, and whether fixing up the libelf.h include issue is the proper
