If you want PATH or any other environment variable to have a
non-default value in an osx application, you have two choices:

1. Define the variable in ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist.

The PATH variable is defined in the environment.plist file. The following entry is in the file:

Since $SYBASE starts with /, you probably don't want that initial slash.

Obviously, it is not understanding the environment variables here. Is there a way that you are aware of to make OS X read the variables from the environment to help define a variable or add to a variable as in the above entry?
