Ah, that makes sense! I did have horrible problems after accidentally allowing
apt to install emacs21 and emacs22. (I went back to 21 because VM didn't work
with 22 at the time). I could have sworn I installed and started using auctex
after that though, but maybe not.

It looks like auctex elc files appear in two places,
/usr/local/share/emacs/site-lisp/ and /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/, I'll remove
them both and start again.

Thanks David & Ralf.
