Comment (by guest):

 This probably needs an extension to ghc-pkg, so that ghc's database can
 record whether a package is installed with profiling version or not.  Then
 cabal-install's job is easy - it just does the same installed-package
 query as usual, except with the profiling flag set.  (Actually, maybe it
 is an _easier_ job that usual, because the version numbers of some
 packages will be fixed by the non-profiled installation, rather than
 cabal-install having to devise a versioning plan to satisfy all
