Further in the ticky-ticky adventure...

Having compiled the libraries and RTS and other bits for ticky-ticky, when
I try the -ticky option with ghc I get loads of messages like this at

/homes/njn25/ws/build/ghc/driver/../rts/libHSrts_t.a(GC.t_o): In function `threadSqueezeStack':
GC.t_o(.text+0x2fe0): undefined reference to `LDV_recordDead_FILL_SLOP_DYNAMIC'
GC.t_o(.text+0x3010): undefined reference to `LDV_recordCreate'
GC.t_o(.text+0x304d): undefined reference to `LDV_recordCreate'

These LDV_* functions seem to only be needed/used if compiling for normal
profiling, which I'm not and don't want to.  Similarly, when I try
recompiling the RTS (trying to make the problem disappear), I get warnings
of this sort:

In file included from Updates.hc:14:
Storage.h: In function `updateWithPermIndirection':
Storage.h:289: warning: implicit declaration of function `LDV_recordDead_FILL_SLOP_DYNAMIC'

So it seems PROFILING is being defined, but I'm not sure where since my
$(BUILD)/mk/builk.mk file has these lines:


Can anyone suggest what might be causing the problem?
