I can tell you what Fink adds by default:
1. If the user's shell is csh or tcsh, it appends the line
test -r /sw/bin/init.csh && source /sw/bin/init.csh
to ~/.tcshrc if this exists, or else to ~/.cshrc.
2. If the user's shell is bash, it appends the line
test -r /sw/bin/init.sh && . /sw/bin/init.sh
to ~/.bash_profile if this exists, else to ~/.bash_login if this exists,
or else to ~/.profile.
3. If the user's shell is not csh, tcsh, or bash, it does nothing.
