[rancid] vs nexus5596 and port-profile

I'm guessing that you mean switch-profiles, as those commands aren't always
in the running config. Port-profiles should be visible, although ports
using them would only have an "inherit port-profile" line in place of all
of the inherited configuration.

The very quick and dirty way would be to edit nxrancid and find the line
that says:

    {'show running-config'      => 'WriteTerm'},

and add a line above it similar to:

    {'show running-config switch-profile'      => 'WriteTerm'},

A cleaner approach would be to clone the WriteTerm sub in the nxrancid to
something like WriteTermSwitchProfile and call that, making sure to change

    return(-1) if (/\% Invalid command at /);

line to

    return(1) if (/\% Invalid command at /);

to accommodate switches that don't take that command. You could also clean
up all of the username/snmp matches in that config, as most of that can't
be replicated to other switches via the switch-profile.
