I finally resorted to

# Poor man replacement for emulate -L
typeset -A __opts
emulate -R sh

for profile_func in /etc/profile.d/*.sh
        source $profile_func

unset profile_func __opts

Given that most distributions have equivalence of /etc/profile.d, having 
simple zsh way to do it (without scoping issues) would be nice.
