I couldn't find an explicit statement of support (or non-support) for
LLVM on Darwin.  However, we could either try to get patches upstream
or keep them gcc-local if they are as trivial as those two.

Your wish has already been granted: for most if not all target
libraries, there's already a --disable-libX/--enable-libX switch,
libsanitizer included.

However, this isn't the right way to handle this: if it's really
concluded that libsanitizer isn't supported on certain Darwin versions,
this should be handled in libsanitizer/configure.tgt so users don't get
failing bootstraps without non-default options.
