As you correctly intuit, it means that Emacs can't find the
gnuserv file in its load path.  However, said path is /not/ the
same as the value of the PATH environment variable.  But rather,
the value of the emacs variable `load-path'.  To modify this to
include the path to gnuserv.  You can add something like this to
your .emacs:

(add-to-list 'load-path "/path/to/dir/containing/gnuserv/")

before the (require 'gnuserv) call.

(see also C-h v load-path RET for a description of the
`load-path' variable).
