One other strategy to try is getting rid of ALL but the *one* profile you
need to build your app.  In the past, having an expired profile present
among your profiles could prevent the signing of an app, even if the profile
had nothing to do with your app.  Not sure if Apple has addressed this yet.

Hope this helps.
