The place I got that from said that you could put them in a user's own profile 
file if you wanted them to be for one user only.  I haven't tested that, and 
I can't remember the details.

I'm not clear why you object to putting it in /etc/profiles?  I shan't be 
using it myself very often - but I just wanted it to work, and by the 
simplest (for me) method.
