help with exec-path

I'm trying to get auctex to use the executables in my self-compiled
texlive installation. I set the proper paths in my .bashrc file, and
again (just for good measure) with (setenv "PATH") in my .emacs. That
doesn't get the proper paths into `exec-path', though.

I would just use `add-to-list' on `exec-path' directly, but looking at
the help buffer for `exec-path' it shows me the current value for the
variable (without my desired paths in it), and then the "original
value", which *does* have the desired paths in it.

That makes me think that the variable is getting reset somewhere. I
shouldn't have to manipulate exec-path directly, should I?
