Hi all.
I'm finalising the new release of Enhanced Carbon Emacs, and I found a 
sort of universal but simple way to solve the path problem in emacs - 
without any other dirty trick. Please experiment with it and tell me 
whether it works, so that I can include it in the distribution.

(defvar shell-bin-exec-path
     "/sw/bin" "/sw/sbin" "/usr/libexec" "/Developer/Tools"
     "/usr/local/bin" "/usr/local/sbin" "/bin" "/sbin"
     "/usr/bin" "/usr/sbin" "/usr/X11R6/bin")
   "The paths where binaries can be found")

(setenv "PATH"
    (concat (getenv "PATH")
			 (let ((result ""))
			   (dolist (path (reverse shell-bin-exec-path))
			     (setq result (concat ":" path result)))
			   (concat result ":" emacs-bin-path))))
