If no corresponding binary distribution is available, and
/usr/lib/libgcc_p.a and the other profiled libraries are not installed
on your system, then you'll have to build them from source.  Install
the proper versions of the base system sources, if you don't already
have them.  Make sure that WITHOUT_PROFILE, NO_PROFILE, and NOPROFILE
are not defined in your build environment, or in any included
makefiles like /etc/make.conf or /etc/src.conf, and that MK_PROFILE is
not defined to be "no" in those places, either.  Then rebuild and
reinstall world and kernel, as described in /usr/src/UPDATING.  Or, if
you know what you're doing, you can build and install only the needed
libraries by hand.  Most of the profiled libraries are automatically
built along with their non-profiled counterparts by commands in
