[Rd] Bug in help for profile; more general problem? (PR#900)

The help topic for "profile" has a link to profile.glm in MASS which
doesn't work in the HTML help.  The problem is that there is no
profile.glm.html file, profile.glm is just an alias for the confint
help topic.

It would be nice if there were a general solution to this problem
(i.e. the system knew how to work with aliases), but it doesn't look
easy:  profile.html is in base, and may well be produced with no copy
of MASS around for reference.  

A short term fix would be to change the link in profile.Rd to
\link[MASS:confint]{profile.glm}, or to add a profile.glm help topic
to MASS.
