Hm.  The RPM provides "auctex" instead of "emacs-auctex".  Looks like
a bad idea (and I can't rule out that it has been my own).

The XEmacs situation makes it quite desirable that we provide XEmacs
RPMs as well.

It is probably the least painful way to split this into three
completely independent packages:


emacs-auctex and xemacs-auctex could be done completely standalone
(namely --without-texmf-dir), and thus be independent of
preview-styles, which would only cater for the typical teTeX dir (and
which we should have for the sake of LyX and other users).

That way, xemacs-auctex would also correspond to installing the XEmacs
package via the XEmacs package manager.  Also, emacs-auctex and
xemacs-auctex would work fine with TeXlive.
