I'm copying this over from the aquamacs-bugs list, because it's  
unlikely to be a bug in Aquamacs.

A good test for these cases is to fire up a terminal (Terminal.app)  
and see if "latex" works from there.  This will be the case if the  
"PATH" setting is correct within a login shell.  In that case, an  
unconfigured Aquamacs will (in most situations, i.e. with a Bash  
shell) also find the "latex" executables.
