Sorry Joe, I don't think your reasoning is compelling.
I'm sure you know how to stick "NO_PROFILE=true" in your /etc/src.conf.

How far do you want to take this?  By this reasoning we should set all
the knobs to "NO" to speed up the build.  I mean we're all competent
code builders running FreeBSD-current and know how to enable knobs in

Is speeding up the build import important to you then the default
base system being an comfortable featureful development environment?

Exactly!  We want to *encourage* the use of profiling in development.
Not make it harder.  With out the profiled libs being readily available,
it becomes yet another step to go thru and an impediment to quick
performance checking.
