You don't need to put .../site-lisp/auctex in a directory present in
`load-path'. `tex-site.el' should be placed in such a directory and
(require 'tex-site) adds the AUCTeX directory to `load-path'.

`TeX-auto-global' is not new. Previously we set it to (concat
TeX-lisp-directory "auto/"). But it should be better placed in a
directory for modifiable data, usually "/var/auctex". I don't know
how the XEmacs package system handles this kind of files.

David plans to do the next release 11.53 soon. Users who dare to test
a snapshot can get it from  or use the CVS access. It would be
useful if some XEmacs users test it before the release. (Currently
all main AUCTeX developers don't use XEmacs and therefore our cursory
examination of XEmacs operation sometimes is not sufficient.) Please
report problems using `TeX-submit-bug-report' (<menu-bar> <latex>
<report auctex bug>).
