Well, it turns out runqslower doesn't build if the current kernel or
vmlinux in tree don't have BTF enabled, so the current alpine builder
can't build it.

I've dropped this patch from my alpine MR[1] and built things directly
with make bpftool etc as suggested above, so my suggestion to make it
more easily buildable that way is probably the way to go?
