Never use --enable-profiling when invoking Setup.
In Cabal 220.127.116.11, the semantics of --disable-profiling/--enable-profiling depend on ordering (because there is a hack that operates by looking at the current flag assignment and doing something). In particular, if I specify --enable-library-profiling --disable-profiling, I end up with library profiling DISABLED. The fix is that we NEVER pass --enable-profiling or --disable-profiling to Cabal. At the moment, and according to my historical analysis, Cabal ONLY uses configProf to affect the effective library/executable profiling, which means that anything we do with --enable-profiling, we can do using the library/executable profiling individually. Since these are always flags for the versions of Cabal library we support, we will get order invariance. Historical versions have varied on whether or not setting executable profiling implies library profiling, but if we set both explicitly this change in behavior doesn't matter. This patch is difficult to test because the bad profiling flags can't be induced on an inplace build. I tested by hand by building a package that depended on 'distributive' by hand. Fixes #3790.
