I didn’t say they are. 

The point is that when you click, it inherits the environment from (I think) the WindowServer, and it (or further upstream) will have executed a login shell. One should see whether in her case the login shell’s environment is sane, or there’s something going on with Aquamacs. 

My Aquamacs reports /usr/local/bin and Roussanka doesn’t. But it does work when she launches it from a Terminal instance  (which does not run a login shell, by default). 

The variable to eliminate is whether there’s something odd with the limited login shell startup that corrupts the path synthesized by /usr/libexec/path_helpe. (man zshall).
