Apologies for delayed reply on this.

No issue with this approach on my end, seems reasonable. Just watch out
that b_sanitize can have "address,undefined" as a possible value, so if we
want to support that, we can't just check directly for the literal string
"address"

Apologies, but I haven't been tracking this set in much detail.
Do we really need this second configuration check? Should it, or could it,
be merged into the check above for the asan library presence?
