[racket] calling osx binaries from racket

This came up before and the environment.plist is mentioned in many 
places as the proper solution. It seems that Apple introduced 
/etc/paths.d for this but you found that it is not sufficient for GUI apps.

OTOH a simple (getenv "PATH") returns the same things as echo $PATH in a 
Terminal window. Generally every environment variable I set in my 
.zshenv is visible in DrRacket. (including all the paths from paths.d)

PS. I run 10.6 and Racket
