Hi Frank,

I met a issue with build systemtap.  Build it need (install
elfutils-devel, libebl-dev, libdw-dev and/or libebl-devel), but ubuntu
looks don't have it.

I try to build elfutils-0.148 with myself, but after I install it,
when I compile other code, I got:
/usr/local/bin/ld: /usr/lib/libelf.so.1: version `ELFUTILS_1.5' not
found (required by /usr/local/bin/ld)
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
It really scared me.

Did you meet this issue in before?

Thanks,
Hui
