See PR 23387.  The HP linkers and dynamic loaders don't like undefined weak
symbols.  GAS provides support for ".weak" using SOM secondary definition
symbols on the 32-bit port.  We use this under HP-UX 11 and it is good
enough for most purposes.  However, the semantics differ from that defined
in the sysv ABI.  The 64-bit support is a little better supported by the
linker, but the dynamic linker still doesn't like undefined weak symbols.

We don't support ".weak' under HP-UX 10 due to linker bugs.

Either XFAIL or dg-require would be ok.  If more tests are likely to be 
added, maybe dg-require would be better.
