I'm using Mac OS X, and I have to (or at least, do for good measure; I don't
remember).

I wrote a simple function to grab the $PATH variable from the .zshrc file, and
then put this in the "PATH" environment variable using setenv in Emacs.

To put this information in exec-path, I use the following:

    (setq exec-path (split-string (getenv "PATH") ":"))

It works pretty well for me.
