I suppose you mean a Aqua version of Emacs21.1, not the terminal version.
The Aqua version doesn't get started from a shell and therefore doesn't
have the proper PATH variable. You can set the PATH (and any other
environment variable) for programs that are started from the Desktop bij
editing an property list in ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist
(you will probably have to create this file and the directory, as they are
not present by default.
Use the variable name as key, and the corresponding value as string. For
example I have:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist SYSTEM "file://localhost/System/Library/DTDs/PropertyList.dtd">
<plist version="0.9">
