You installed a precompiled binary package (with dselect or apt-get) or
you built it from sources ('fink install ...')?

If you define PATH in ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist to include /sw/bin,
you won't have to go through an intermediate shell in this way.

When you launch it from the xterm, where is /sw/bin on PATH? To put it
another way, what does 'which emacs' say?

When you launch from Terminal, what's the value of DISPLAY?

Did you install the X11 developer package as well?

If you fix up ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist you won't have to do this
silliness any more...
