-DNOPROFILE with make buildworld...

I'm currently running 5.3 (security patched via freebsd-update). I'm intending to update to 5.4 - and this is my first attempt at the buildworld etc. process.

I've cvsup'ed my source tree, and stepping through the instructions in the handbook I note that it recommends running make buildworld with -DNOPROFILE (or specifying it in make.conf). I'm not clear what the impact of running profiled libraries is against non-profiled libraries. I've done a quick search via google and through the list archives without success.

Could anyone explain the difference for me briefly so that I can make an informed choice?

My first post to the list - although I've been lurking for a while. Apologies if the formatting on the email isn't too good. I'm mailing from work which uses Outlook 2000.

Thanks for any advice.
