The AUCTeX source does not contain set-match-data (don't know whether it
did in 11.83; grep for it).  But the compiled Lisp files do, probably
because of a save-match-data macro.  So it would seem that you have
elc files compiled with the wrong Emacs version in your path, or a
set-match-data macro definition from the wrong Emacs version.

M-x list-load-path-shadows RET

might help in diagnosing the problem, but if I remember correctly, on
Debian the list is rather depressingly large because of a fundamental
Emacs package policy misdesign.
