You may want to check if you have the same issue when you start it from the
command line (emacs/nextstep/Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/Emacs).
If the issue is fixed when starting from CL it is similar to an issue I had
recently when launching Emacs.app directly vs launching if from the command
When launching from the command line you get the shell's environment variables
(including the PATH to your various commands), *NOT* when you launch Emacs.app
Basically, when I run Emacs.app, I either create an alias to
emacs/nextstep/Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/Emacs and launch it directly from the
command line, or I use an Applescript "launcher" (that calls that same Emacs)
that I call from Spotlight.
I can send you the applescript if you want.
