All is well in Aquamacs land! As I said above, the PATH is actually fine. The problem seems to have been that the latex command was changed to pdflatex and pdf mode (terminology problem?) was turned on so an additional pdf was prepended to pdflatex. I changed the pdflatex back to latex and all seems to be well now.
Not knowing what to look for and then not knowing how to get to change it was my real problem.
