Aren't there anyone interested in this topic? (Tassilo or Colin?)

Though I haven't tested the new feature discussed here, it seems that
the proposed patch still needs refinement. AUCTeX falls into infinite
loop after C-c C-c latex RET, if I let `TeX-output-dir' to be default
value of nil. In addition, C-c C-c claen RET gives the error "Symbol's
value as variable is void: mode-prefix".

And after I set `TeX-output-dir' to "build", just C-c C-c gives the
error "Symbol's value as variable is void: mode-prefix".
