Patch applied, thanks!

Rasmus, regarding the problem with PATH, what prevents you from adding
the path of Sumatra to your PATH environment variable?  I don't see
how hard-coding a path in `TeX-view-program-list-builtin' would be a
better solution.

From experience, under Windows, the vast majority of users don't know how to change their PATH.
So either assume the installer did change their PATH for them or let them hardcode the SumatraPDF location
into some emacs configuration file. 

BTW, I do the later for myself.
I hate to surcharge my PATH with too many locations. I overwrite my own default Windows PATH
from emacs init.el with the minimum vital locations to run/work with emacs.
