Well, because obviously this would *never* solve this problem for my
users, unless they replicate my configuration.

If Compile Mode was now changed to set a variable, lets call it
"EMACS_PATH" for now, I myself would not need to do anything, and my
users would just need to add this variable to their "init.el"
temporarily, until 24.4 is released.

And besides, setting variables in "init.el" just to support a single
script is sort of a dirty hack, isn't it?  I'd rather like to see this
solved in a clean way in Emacs itself.

After all, this use case can't be so special that none else has it.
