Emacs has a solution for everything! Try the amazing tramp package to
edit remote files (although I am not sure whether auctex is "tramp
aware"). `C-h i m TRAMP RET' That said, as far as I know reftex-mode
works just fine on a terminal. You will only miss out on the latex
previews in auctex.

(icons, buttons, scroll bars ...) anyway. :-)
