Yes, that was an issue, thanks for the hint! Checked it and it did not 
contain the relevant paths. So I added
(setq exec-path (append exec-path '("/usr/texbin/")))
(setq exec-path (append exec-path '("/opt/local/bin")))    because 
pdf2dsc could not be found (not startet in sh)
(setenv "PATH" (concat "/opt/local/bin:" (getenv "PATH"))) because of gs
(setenv "PATH" (concat "/usr/texbin:" (getenv "PATH")))     because of 
latex and pdflatex

But somehow it seems strange me that I have to explicitly add them, isn't?

Nevertheless I don't get preview to run, it just display the typical 
stop signs.
No error message was produced.  The last snippet is

Output written on paper.pdf (90 pages, 736830 bytes).
Transcript written on paper.log.
^^^^^^^^^ This file contains the formula snippets to be loaded into emacs.
and the last lines:

So it seems there goes something wrong during the last steps...
Has anybody else encounter the same problem? And thanks for your patience!
