The issue with the profiler is that it needs to load and run code at
Lisp startup time, before application threads are started.  CCL does
not have any option to do this by default, so the profiler startup
code must be run from ccl-init.lisp.  If that has been done, I think
it interacts properly with Slime's profiler interface, but I have not
tried that in a while.
