My recollection of the problems that led to blackdown being masked in
the newer profiles is as below.  Basically there were two main
problems that were noticed.

- Using a newer gcc and glibc than was in the 2005.x profiles caused
failures with blackdown (probably broken library dependencies).
- Even when it did work, there were problems on multi-processor
systems where applications would fail to build but worked just fine on
a single processor system
