You probably simply need to re-customise global_defines.pt .

Quoting from this document http://plone.org/documentation/migration/2.1  :

"Tip: How to re-customize your templates

If you have done significant changes to the Plone 2.0 templates 
(functionally, that is - the CSS classes are mostly the same as in 2.0), 
you may have to re-apply these customizations to the 2.1 templates. The 
best way to do this is:

     * Have one directory with the original Plone 2.0 templates
     * Compare your customized templates with the original Plone 2.0 
ones (a visual diff tool is useful for this - we recommend Meld for 
Linux, FileMerge (included in XCode) for Mac OS X, and WinMerge for Windows)
     * Apply those changes to the 2.1 templates. Of course, your 
customizations should not touch the original Plone 2.1 files, so make 
sure you place your customized templates in a file system Product, or in 
the custom directory in portal_skins. "
