When was the system in question installed?
The changelog for base-files 5.3 says (emphasis mine) "Changed *default*
/etc/profile so that it sources /etc/profile.d/*.sh"; /etc/profile is
generated from the default file at initial install and not touched on
upgrades, so if the system was installed with an earlier base-files
version then you won't automatically get /etc/profile.d support.
You can check /usr/share/base-files/profile in order to verify that the
default file does include profile.d support.
