By ensuring that whatever process launches emacs provides it with
the PATH you want.  Your subject suggests that you're launching it
directly from fluxbox, so you'll want to figure out

- how to make fluxbox set a particular PATH when it launches emacs, or
- how to set PATH in the environment of fluxbox itself, so that it
  gets passed on to emacs.

Neither of these things really has anything to do with zsh.  There's
a fluxbox-users mailing list that you might try.

I think setting or modifying PATH in .zshenv is really bad form and
should be avoided unless absolutely necessary.  I encourage you to
figure out how to properly configure the environment for emacs
