I noticed that the shell environment when calling system() from C, using NSTask
>from Cocoa or using "do shell script" from applescript only includes the
standard paths. 

Try issuing the command "echo $PATH" through one of these methods and see what
happens. By the way, the epstopdf script relies on the path to be set correctly,
so calling with full path-names will only solve part of your problem.
