Yes, it looks like you are missing p_dyn from this list. I think
this is a bug in the build system.  When I look at ghc.mk
it only verifies that the p way is present, not p_dyn; and I don't
see any knobs which turn on p_dyn.

However, I must admit to being a little confused; didn't we abandon
dynamic by default and switch to only using dynamic for GHCi (in which
case the profiling libraries ought not to matter)?
