You're right.
I'll do it like that.

Scripts must be self-contained. It is grievous mistake to assume anything about the environment. So it is best to follow Arnaud's advice and use absolute paths to other scripts/binaries that you need.  
If that's not possible, it is probably better to source /etc/profile from within the script you're running.
