$ make clean
Makefile:18: *** "Can't detect kernel BTF, use VMLINUX_BTF to specify it explicitly".  Stop.
$ make VMLINUX_BTF=~/build/linux/vmlinux V=1
Makefile:18: *** "Can't detect kernel BTF, use VMLINUX_BTF to specify it explicitly".  Stop.

Take another look at the relevant part of the makefile:

  ifneq ("$(wildcard /sys/kernel/btf/vmlinux)","")
  VMLINUX_BTF := /sys/kernel/btf/vmlinux
  else ifneq ("$(wildcard /boot/vmlinux-$(KERNEL_REL))","")
  VMLINUX_BTF := /boot/vmlinux-$(KERNEL_REL)
  else
  $(error "Can't detect kernel BTF, use VMLINUX_BTF to specify it explicitly")
  endif

That if/else doesn't actually consider the value of VMLINUX_BTF; so the
override only works if one of the files being considered by the
auto-detection actually exists... :)
