[OS X Emacs] Getting etags working

I am trying to learn elisp a bit quicker than I am managing at the mo.
I would like to make TAGS for aquamacs, auctex and vanilla emacs and be able to flick between different versions of each.
I'm kinda expecting etags to be a unix executable, but terminal cannot see it.
zsh: command not found: etags
however an etags.exe can be found in package contents of Aquamacs
Is it safe to option drag it into my $PATH somewhere? And if so where? And will it work?
/usr/local/bin seems to offer it company since aquamacs and emacs live there.
ls -l aqu*
-rwxr-xr-x@ 1 root admin 993 29 Jul 2020 aquamacs
Does this mean I nead to sudo and chown it when it arrives.
I am nervous, since I have just discovered how difficult it is to clone and restore Big Sur.
