#60818 new enhancement

darwintrace cannot inject into binaries of a different architecture

darwintrace injects code into every process during installation, and these processes can have different architectures. If darwintrace does not have a slice that matches the process, it will fail to load; it might be worth compiling it as universal (including arm64e–note this requires undocumented ptrauth ABI) regardless of configure flags.

We already do compile darwintrace universal for this reason, though it would not surprise me if arm64 is not among the architectures it uses for that yet, since arm64 Macs were only just announced.
