Description:

/etc/profile has exports for a number of packages that aren't guaranteed to be installed.

This defeats the whole point of the modularity provided by /etc/profile.d and pollutes the environment with someone's (not the developer) idea of vanilla settings.

Comments:

-# Export default pkg-config path
-PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/usr/lib/pkgconfig"
-export PKG_CONFIG_PATH

Default in pkg-config. Can be removed.

-# Some readline stuff that is fairly common
-HISTSIZE=1000
-HISTCONTROL="erasedups"

Users job to set up their history if the do not like the default. Remove.

-INPUTRC="/etc/inputrc"

Default in readline. Remove.

-LESS="-R"

We should not customise this. It is the users job. Remove.

So, we should remove all those and close the related bug reports as Won't Implement.
