Obviously /usr/local/texlive/2007/bin/powerpc-darwin is not in  
shell's PATH or Emacs' exec-path or both.

You might like to read http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki/ 
CarbonEmacsPackage#toc31 to find a radical solution for all your  
dozens of problems with the UNIX concept of environment variables and  
what Apple is doing with them.

Instead of a fixed /usr/local/texlive/2007/bin/powerpc-darwin value  
it's also possible to use a "universal" /usr/local/texlive/2007/bin/ 
`uname -p`-`uname -s` expression where hardware platform and OS name  
are filled-in when the PATH is set first around login time.



I hope to die before I *have* to use Microsoft Word.
