Is it sufficient to do it for just the {{~name}} style of Profile link, 
or do you want/need it to be done for all links to the Profiles group--
i.e., even those where someone has written {{Profiles/Author Name}}
instead of {{~Author Name}}?

If it's sufficient doing just the {{~name}} style of links, then I think 
you can do the following in config.php:

    $DoubleBrackets['/{{~([[:alpha:]][-\\w\\s]*)}}/e'] =
    function AuthorLink($name) {
      global $AuthorGroup;
      $k = FreeLink("\{\{$AuthorGroup/$name}}");
      return FmtPageName("<a class='authorlink' href='\$PageUrl'>$name</a>",
    $HTMLHeaderFmt[] = "<style type='text/css'><!--
      .authorlink { text-decoration:none; color:inherit; }
This has the advantage in that {{~author name}} generates links without
decorations, while leaving {{Profiles/author name}} available for
creating links with decorations.

If you really want it such that *any* link to the Profiles group is generated
without decoration, then yes it can be done without modifying pmwiki.php
but it's a little bit trickier.  Let me know.
