    sanitizers: mark __elf_aux_vector as weak, to allow linking without libsys
    After libsys was introduced, linking sanitized programs started failing
      # c++ -fsanitize=address
      ld: error: undefined symbol: __elf_aux_vector
      >>> referenced by sanitizer_linux_libcdep.cpp:950 (/usr/src/contrib/llvm-project/compiler-rt/lib/sanitizer_common/sanitizer_linux_libcdep.cpp:950)
      >>>               sanitizer_linux_libcdep.o:(__sanitizer::ReExec()) in archive /usr/lib/clang/17/lib/freebsd/libclang_rt.asan-x86_64.a
      c++: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation)
    Mark __elf_aux_vector as weak in the internal sanitizer declaration, so
    the linker will accept it at link time. The dynamic linker will then
    take care of the symbol at run time.
