You have the defaults utility which you can use inside shell RC files:

        setenv MANPATH  `defaults read ~/.MacOSX/environment MANPATH`
        export PATH=$(defaults read "${HOME}/.MacOSX/environment" PATH)

If needed! Remember that ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist is read at login time so that all applications launched afterwards (from Dock or via launch service) inherit this process environment. (On Tiger, Mac OS X 10.4, X11 did not pass the environemnt to its X clients.) When you remotely log in you might need settings in your login shell's RC file(s). Which I can't test...
