Er, I'm not sure what you're getting at here. No means no.  Really.
The default, as I explained, is to build and install the profiling
libraries, unless one or more of three disabling variables has been
defined. And that's the default because users of these ports often use
the profiled libraries when analyzing performance of their programs,
which are usually computationally-intensive.  Why the three variables?
 Because they control whether the profiling libraries are actually
built via and

As I wrote earlier, there needs to be some additional logic here, at
least warnings about NO*, and maybe some other steps.  There is a
confluence of base system options with port options here.  I will
discuss it with the maintainer.
