If you want to change the envvars globally, then change them in /etc/profile since all users' profile include that.

Is /etc/profile read when a user logs in via xdm, kdm, gdm or a
similar program?

I tried to get my ~/.profile (or ~/.bash_profile or ~/.zprofile) read
when logging in via [gkx]dm, but gave up long ago.  Now I use startx...

I only tried it with startx from a cmd line. Thanks for the info. But I can't think where else you would set it up.
