The latest default /etc/profile should have copied these files into your
$HOME if it didn't exist before.  Rename your home directory (e.g., to
/home/myuser-bak) and start a login bash (e.g., by double-clicking on the
Cygwin icon).  Then copy everything from /home/myuser to /home/myuser-bak;
remove /home/myuser, and rename /home/myuser-bak back to /home/myuser.
Provided you have the latest /etc/profile, this should work.  If not, and
you don't have any customizations in your /etc/profile, remove it,
re-install the "base-files" package, and then repeat the above steps.
