If you are certain the same or close-enough data is being passed
(modulo size difference) you could try setting the
process-connection-type variable.  That and environment settings are
the only things I can think of that could possibly vary from Emacs.app
to Carbon version.

Regarding the latter, you could try running M-x ns-grabenv (picks up
current shell env -- see doc for the function) to try to more closely
replicate the env inside the emacs shell in the one the errant gs
process is being run under.
