Hm that is odd.
I thought that somewhere deep in the auctex code there are standards
path set like /usr/bin  /usr/local/bin etc (however I could not find
such setting) so basically you say (X)Emacs wants the executables like
xdvi in any PATH whatsoever.

I confess the laptop with MaC OS is not mine, but I suspect the tex
installation to be a MaC OS specific one and not texlive.

But what  I don't understand is the following.
If I do 

 «which xdvi» in the terminal application of the Mac (which I think is a
 bash shell) and it returns


Isn't (X)Emacs supposed to find this executable?

In GNU/Linux and Xemacs 21.5.34 everything is fine!
