In Slackware it's done with a script: /etc/profile.d/bsd-games-login-fortune.sh
Code:
#!/bin/sh
# Print a fortune cookie for interactive shells:
if [[ $- = *i* ]]; then
  echo
  fortune fortunes fortunes2 linuxcookie
  echo
fi
or this in ~/.bashrc, from:
http://tldp.org/LDP/abs/html/sample-bashrc.html
Code:
if [ -x /usr/games/fortune ]; then
    /usr/games/fortune -s
fi
