Problem

I tried to follow the building from source instructions on a fresh install of Fedora 28 - Workstation.

Eventually this error was emitted during compilation of the Linux kernel:

Makefile:974: *** "Cannot generate ORC metadata for CONFIG_UNWINDER_ORC=y, please install libelf-dev, libelf-devel or elfutils-libelf-devel".  Stop.

Resolution

The first two did not exist, but I was able to install elfutils-libelf-devel.

sudo dnf install elfutils-libelf-devel

I then ran make clean; make all and compilation is progressing.

Cause

It appears that in November 2017 Linux began to require libelf.

Suggested change

Perhaps updating the list of packages to install to build from source would be helpful. I would be happy to submit a PR to this effect.
