Thank you Peter. I made two changes that seem to do the trick (I had earlier done Aquamacs -> Tools ->
Install Command Line Tools). The changes were: a) Remove the '~/.emacs_bash' symlink I'd created; b)
Create a '~/.bashrc' file containing an invocation of my alias-setting script; c) Invoke '~/.bashrc'
from '~/.bash_profile' (leaving exported env vars in ~/'.bash_profile' where they belong).
Aquamacs seems to append '/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/texbin' to the path it gets from
'~/.bash_profile', but that doesn't seem to be a problem.

redundant values in them.

expected way: '.bash_profile' is executed once on the *nix system, and all shells, including Emacs shell
buffers, get the variables from that. Likewise, '.bashrc' executes once per *nix shell, including for
Emacs shell buffers.
