All it does is prevent building the profiled versions of the libraries:
look in /usr/lib and you'll see for example libc.so and libc_p.so - the
_p version is the profiled version.  The only problem I can see with
disabling it using WITHOUT_PROFILE is that unless you remove the _p
libraries they'll become stale over time.
