Ah, those variables are available also in Terminal? So $PATH is treated 
differently? If I don't define it in ~/.profile, $PATH set in 
/etc/profile is used and that in environment.plist is ignored in 
Terminal. Perhaps because a command called by ^R in Xcode would not be 
executed via login shell?
