Hi! I installed the 6.2-RC1 version but now I have decided to remove
the profiled libraries and I know that for that purpose I have to add
the line "NO_PROFILE=" to the make.conf before the "make world"
My doubt is if I reinstall or upgrade the Userland without this option
or anyone (let's say Kerberos, Sendmail.. etc) that I have already
installed, these options are going to be removed, or simply are not
going to be upgraded and/or reinstalled again.
Assuming I have read you correctly, when you put
into you /etc/make.conf that buildworld (and by extension
installworld) skip over these, leaving the old versions
untouched. For example, as I have many of those set
in /etc/make.conf ls -l /usr/sbin gives me in part:

Where you can see that, although I have rebuilt world as of
21 Nov, since I have NO_BIND= set, the /usr/sbin/named*
has not been touched since 01 Feb. I suppose they could be
deleted, but AFIK the buildworld/installworld cycle will not do
this for you.
On the other hand, if you are not cramped for space they do
(generally) no harm.
On the gripping hand, a malicious user might be able to start
up and then exploit known bugs in those services, so you may
be better off either upgrading to known good versions or
