Did you install the "base-files" package?  The postinstall script should
have created an /etc/profile for you (by copying it from
/etc/defaults/etc/profile).  If it failed, there should be a message in
/var/log/setup.log.full (unless you ran setup after that, in which case
that file will have been overwritten).
