I always forget what is the standard. Can you try
Sorry, too late! I'd already reconfigured my XEmacs with --with-mule and
rebuilt it before I saw your email. With that change, I can now load
tex-jp.el into XEmacs successfully, and indeed it builds properly whilst
making the packages.

That is true for Xemacs but not for GNU Emacs. (GNU Emacs is not Mule
free since 15 years or even more.) Don't forget that auctex was almost
entirely developed by GNU Emacs users, and so it seems likely that you
need a Mule version to compile tex-jp.el
Yes. To build the packages' sources, one must configure --with-mule.
Anyhow, I've now got my XEmacs more or less working again (after several
days pure pain) - recent XEmacs cores don't work at all well with older
(November 2011) packages. ;-)
