[tex-live] texlive, linux and emacs

Dear list, 

I just installed texlive on my ubuntu 5.4

In terminal my texlive binaries are found very well, but emacs doesn't
find them.  It seems that emacs doesn't search them were I put them

When I ask emacs: (getenv "PATH") C-x C-e

The answer is:

At the emacs e-mail list I was told my problem is a global one, not of
emacs, so the solution should be a global level.  Can you please tell me
does that mean? (They won't)

Should I make links of all texlive executables to /usr/loca/bin ?
And, how could I do this at once?

Or should I change change some other general files?

Thank you in advance,
