Can't Compile Wifi Driver

When I try to compile the driver for my Dlink USB wifi adapter, I'm getting the following error:

make[1]: Entering directory '/usr/src/kernels/4.15.14-300.fc27.x86_64' Makefile:951: * "Cannot generate ORC metadata for CONFIG_UNWINDER_ORC=y, please install libelf-dev, libelf-devel or elfutils-libelf-devel". Stop.

I have installed elfutils-libelf-devel (even the static pacakge):

rpm -qa | grep libelf

elfutils-libelf-0.170-10.fc27.x86_64 elfutils-libelf-devel-static-0.170-10.fc27.x86_64 elfutils-libelf-devel-0.170-10.fc27.x86_64

I've done a full update on the system, and here's the kernel I'm running:

uname -r


The particular adapter I have is a Dlink DWA-171 Rev A1. I've done a fair bit of searching and everything says to install the package, but that hasn't helped at all. Any help would be appreciated.
