Can you modify the command that is sent to be the full/path/to/LaTeX?
That ought to solve the problem, I'd think.  ISTR reading that the
Enhanced Carbon Emacs expects absolute pathnames, and your install of
LaTeX may not be where it is expected.  You ought to be able to
modify the e-LISP function TeX-run-LaTeX, I'd think.

I use Emacs on my aged iMac Rev B, but under X11 rather than using one
of the Carbon based builds due to disk space problems (a 4 GB hard
drive...).  Some of the Carbon builds are pretty slick and do a good
job of appearing OS X-native while retaining normal Emac functionality
and keybindings.  Thanks to Mr. Choi!
