As an amendment to my previous note, normally, if the shell inside emacs
can find the executable, then emacs should be able to find it too. There
are some abnormal situations however (e.g. defining PATH in .bashrc or
equiv - yecchh) that would cause the shell to find it whereas emacs would
not be able to. So Yagnesh is correct in asking for more checking.
