Right now we don't modify /etc/profile.d/installer by hand at all.
We /JUST/ ask the user to make the changes.  I agree that this is what
we should continue to do, so I agree with Andreas to not modify
/etc/profile.d ourselves.

I'll note that some people might not want /etc/profile.d modified
by the build script; they should be allowed to do so on their own.
