Just add this bit of elisp to your .emacs or (.xemacs/init.el) file:
(concat (getenv "PATH")
(car (last exec-path))))
This should make sure that the directory containing etags gets added
to your shell's path.
Basically, I agree with Per and I'd rather not add an XEmacs directory
to the system path if I can avoid it, so I will be removing that
feature from the setup kit.
PS. As you can see above, the XEmacs startup code does add the
necesary directory to exec-path, but the PATH environment variable
does not get set to the value of exec-path, so sub-processes do not
inherit that value.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting--
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things. Mary Oliver
