--enable-callgrind turns on --enable-profiling

--enable-profiling means, as far as I can tell, "add commands to appropriate global objects that allow controlling profiling" (so start/stop/pause/resume/etc.)

Many profiler-like things don't really need that sort of thing, but Callgrind must be explicitly started (AFAICT; I haven't actually used it). So it makes little sense to use --enable-callgrind without --enable-profiling.

Other profiling options already enable --enable-profiling, too, so this isn't a first.

(nb: I made this patch to work around another problem which I have correctly resolved in other ways, so if there's some reason to not do this, then it's not going to break anything. For example, if we decide to --enable-callgrind by default, it would widen the attack surface very slightly to also --enable-profiling.)
