Usually, features that require additional libraries are implemented as
optional;  it is always possible to (re-)implement the necessary part
of libbpf in strace, if deemed suitable.
See, for example, the initial selinux enablement[1].

In terms of decoders[2] (and some utility functions[3]), those are
usually done together, more or less;  I think, the similar approach is
applicable to BTF decoding as well.
