But that's not the way I work with Emacs. I work with in the GUI 
exclusively and I sometimes need to use emacsclient in a script (applescript) 
to launch files directly in Emacs.

Having emacs and emacsclient in the path is just a convenience, not a 
requirement. My requirement is that I can move the package and use 
the commands that are contained inside the package.
