I found out with testing, that csh works fine, but shell does not.  The
shell environment variables are not being setup/passed properly before
the profile.d files are being run.  I find that nearly all of the tests 
-z flag are showing that environment variables prior to executing
the profile.d files are empty, so hard-wired environment variables are
being declared.  It does not appear to be a problem with Alliance's
scripts, rather it is something else "higher up", or so it seems.
