Your emacs probably hasn't /usr/texbin in its PATH. I guess you are
using Mac OS X (because of /usr/texbin) and using or similar.
In Mac OS X the settings of path in your .profile etc (those for shells)
don't propagate to GUI programs like Emacs.

You can add it to exec-path, or set the PATH env var in
~/.MacOSX/environment.plist (although some people are opposed to this).

BTW: always specify your OS, Emacs version and TeX installation with
this kind of questions.
