Sorry for the delay, I was out last week and I'm still getting caught

Which libelf was this? I'm guessing it's the old non-elfutils version
which has been unmaintained for 10 years (and which doesn't work with
objtool anyway).

It would be nice if we could figure out a way to detect that libelf and
report a more useful error for it.
