For a temporary fix I made a symlink to /usr/local/bin/ccl64 and it sort of works how a freshly installed Emacs is configured. My question is this: Since this error that I noted in my original post is happening on all the version of Emacs on my system, is there a global "user preferences" file, other than a .emacs file, when a user edits his/her preferences via the Preferences menu?

Yes, there is: ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist. It sets the environment for all processes at boot time. Read more here: http://developer.apple.com/qa/qa2001/qa1067.html (also available via Xcode on disk: /Developer/Documentation/DocSets/ com.apple.ADC_Reference_Library.CoreReference.docset/Contents/ Resources/Documents/qa/qa2001/qa1232.html).

The file can be used as in:

        setenv MANPATH  `defaults read ~/.MacOSX/environment MANPATH`
        export PATH=$(defaults read "${HOME}/.MacOSX/environment" PATH)


Since Mac OS X 10.5 Apple introduced /etc/paths.d and /etc/manpaths.d. There you can put files with the path to some additional bin or man directory. Both methods should be able to solve the problem that Aquamacs cannot find some executables.
