Yes.  If you inherit the PATH.  Of course one could set an
absolute path there,  but that's bad.  My PATH is set in .login,
and in .MacOSX/environment.plist.

I fear there is no perfect solution to fix the path in X11.app.
The closest is probably to modify  /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc, however
if a user has a $HOME/.xinitrc already, then the system-wide one
won't be executed.
