There is nothing in Debian's /etc/profile which reads such a file.
Debian's /etc/profile does, however, dot in all the files in
/etc/profile.d/. No, wait. Not all the files. Just all the files
that end with a .sh suffix. And you'd better not put spaces in the
filenames either, because there's a blatant bug right here:
for i in /etc/profile.d/*.sh; do
if [ -r $i ]; then
I don't expect anything better; that would be foolish optimism in
violation of decades of historical precedent.
