The man pages in jdk repo are an older version and they have not been 
updated (sadly to say).  Hopefully we can resume working on the man 
pages doc work soon.

Removing -Xprof from these man pages is fine with me.  So yes please 
also update bsd for completely.

Can you file a docs issue to update the online version of the man page 
that the docs team maintains?
