Hi Listdata, we haven't enabled profiling builds, because no-one ever
asked for it. The Haskell packages that are distributed in [extra] are
built with '-p' by default, but none of the AUR packages are. The
reason for that is that [extra] packages are downloaded in binary
form, so build times don't matter much for the average user. Packages
from AUR, however, need to be compiled on the user's machine. These
builds are fairly expensive already, because every library needs to be
compiled twice to generate static and shared variants. If we'd add
'-p' to those builds, too, then compile times would go up even
further. That seems like a fairly high cost to impose on everyone in
order to get a feature that most people don't need.
