I think Kazu is saying that when he builds something with profiling
using cabal-install, it fails because cabal-install tries to build a
dynamic version too. We don't want dyanmic/profiled libraries (there's
no point, you can't load them into GHCi). Perhaps this is something
that needs fixing in cabal-install?
