In local/config.php:

    $AuthorLink = $Author;

should be enough to do it.  (AFAIK, the page history already displays
just the author name without creating a link to the profiles page.)

If that doesn't work, then you can just set the $RecentChangesFmt
directly (this changes the default from $AuthorLink to $Author):

$RecentChangesFmt = array(
  '$SiteGroup.AllRecentChanges' =>
    '* [[{$Group}.{$Name}]]  . . . $CurrentTime $[by] $Author: [=$ChangeSummary=]',
  '$Group.RecentChanges' =>
    '* [[{$Group}/{$Name}]]  . . . $CurrentTime $[by] $Author: [=$ChangeSummary=]');

Hope this helps,
