The best way would be to fix whatever needs to be fixed in
selftests/bpf and/or bpftool Makefiles to support cross-compilation.
There was some work already for bpftool to support that (with building
bpftool-bootstrap separately for a host architecture, etc). Please
check what's broken and let's try to fix it.
