O.K. Sorry. I got the auctex in zippbed bundle with w32 Emacs and date is:

AUCTeX-date "2007-01-23"

so I don't have the TeX-engine variable. It's not mentioned in tex.el and will probably be in next version.

The above questions probably should be asked in XeTeX mailing list.

Is it possible to run this tex variant from auctex?
