The "enable-" prefix suggests that you could also disable a profile,
so I would suggest a different name, even if that requires a bit more work
in configure.ac. How about simply --install-profile=...?

I like this set of profiles. I have just two concerns.

One: should the debug profile include ssdebug for hlc? I don't use it,
so I don't know how generally useful it is.

Two: the "all" profile should be given a name that makes it clear
that it includes grades that are very unlikely to be useful.
