That's not the proper solution! This function is special to the 
Japanese Carbon Emacs, and it's used from a file that's usually not 

There are two solutions: add/correct the value of PATH in 
~/.MacOSX/environment.plist or use Enrico Franconi's way:

(defvar emacs-bin-path
   (let (result)
     (dolist (single-path exec-path result)
       (when (string-match ".app/Contents/MacOS/bin" single-path)
         (setq result (concat single-path "/")))))
   "Returns the absolute path of emacs binaries")

(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")

(when darwinp
   (unless (and (boundp 'exec-path) (listp exec-path))
     (setq exec-path nil))
   (setq exec-path
         (append exec-path
                 (list emacs-bin-path)))
   (setenv "PATH" (concat (getenv "PATH")
                          (let ((result ""))
                            (dolist (path (reverse shell-bin-exec-path))
                              (setq result (concat ":" path result)))
                            (concat result ":" emacs-bin-path))))

Edit the elements of shell-bin-exec-path! This will make your TeX 
binaries available in Carbon Emacs.
