You are right.
In fact, I have added new variable 'ctagscom' to gtags.conf file 
in the master repository. Using it, you can overwrite the path of ctags 
at the time of execution.

exuberant-ctags|plugin-example|setting to use Exuberant Ctags plug-in parser:\
        :ctagscom=/usr/local/bin/ctags:\                <== ADDED

The next release of GLOBAL should include the facility.
