If you launch emacs by double-clicking, it doesn't source
your shell rc.  That's the root of the problem.  

You can open from it a shell instead - in that case it will of course
use the current value of PATH.  If you create a Terminal document
which opens, you can double-click that to launch emacs and
the effect will be the same.

The other choice is to set exec-path explicitly in your .emacs.
That's what I do.  For instance if your shell rc adds the fink
directories to PATH, do this in .emacs:

  (setq exec-path (append '("/sw/bin" "/sw/sbin") exec-path))

Or you can set the ispell path specifically, but that won't help for
the next thing you try to run from emacs (eg stunnel if you want to
use vm with pop3s).
