How Set Default Umask

How do you set the default Umask setting for all users on the computer in Slackware?

I tried to change it in /etc/profile but it did not change for root or other users.
root is using /bin/bash and all other users are using /bin/false so they do not have a local .profile.

The other users are using the chroot option in openssh5.2 and thus using the "ForceCommand internal-sftp" option.
Anyone know what shell the internal-sftp is using?

I don't see a /etc/default/bashrc like on other distros.

What about 'umask 022' in /etc/rc.d/rc.local

BTW, my /etc/profile contains the following:
# Default umask.  A umask of 022 prevents new files from being created
# group and world writable.
umask 022
