is what you are supposed to get when running Xemacs on Unix.

So why doesn't it work when you do have /usr/bin/gnuclient available?

The first place to look is in the environment.

>From within the *R* buffer, enter

You should see /usr/bin in the list. 

>From within M-x shell, enter
  gnuclient -q tmp

the tmp file or directory should open in the existing emacs.

If /usr/bin is not in your path, you need to get it there.
Edit .profile or .cshrc or other appropriate file and add it to the path.
