Grep for prv-install.el in the Makefiles, that is the file generating

It does so with
(defun preview-make-package-xemacs ()
  "Do anything required to make a package in XEmacs,
other than actually copying the Lisp files.

Generates auto-autoloads, custom-loads, and package metadata file
in the right locations.  Takes from the command line the package directory,
package name, and version (to be evaluated), followed by a file to append."

So the fourth argument to preview-make-package-xemacs names a file to
append at the end of auto-autoloads.el.

This would be (from

        test "x$(packagedir)" = xno || { \
          $(MKINSTALLDIRS) $(DESTDIR)$(packagedir)/pkginfo || : ; \
          $(ELCC) -l preview/prv-install -f preview-make-package 
$(DESTDIR)$(packagedir) "$(PACKAGE)" \"`echo $(AUCTEXDATE)|sed 
's/\(.*\)-\(.*\)-\(.*\)/\1.\2\3/'`\" \"$(AUCTEXVERSION)\" tex-site.el && \
          cd $(DESTDIR)$(packagedir) && \
          find "etc/$(PACKAGE)" "lisp/$(PACKAGE)" -print 
>"pkginfo/MANIFEST.$(PACKAGE)" && \
          for i in $(PACKAGE_INFO); do \
            test -r "info/$$" && echo "info/$$" >> 
"pkginfo/MANIFEST.$(PACKAGE)" ; \
          done && \
          echo "pkginfo/MANIFEST.$(PACKAGE)" >> "pkginfo/MANIFEST.$(PACKAGE)" ; 

As you can see, tex-site.el is appended at the end of the autoload

I hope this helps.  Yes, it is non-nice to use a procedure in the
preview subdirectory for this, but this is from the time where
preview-latex could be built stand-alone.
