internal/vulncheck/internal/buildinfo: support stripped darwin binaries

With go1.22 and its prereleases, binaries are also stripped on darwin.
This cannot be observed by checking emptiness of the symbol table, yet
by non-existence of program symbols, "runtime.main" being a symbol that
every program should have.

Fixes golang/go#61051

Go Vulnerability Management

Go Reference

Go's support for vulnerability management includes tooling for analyzing your codebase and binaries to surface known vulnerabilities in your dependencies. This tooling is backed by the Go vulnerability database, which is curated by the Go security team. Go’s tooling reduces noise in your results by only surfacing vulnerabilities in functions that your code is actually calling.

You can install the latest version of govulncheck using go install

go install

Then, run govulncheck inside your module:

govulncheck ./...

See the govulncheck tutorial to get started, and for more information about Go's support for vulnerability management. The API documentation can be found at
