Re: [AUCTeX] Path for TeX-macro-private

Hi Ralf, Vladimir

Thanks  for assistance.
I think I solved the problem by putting the paths for my local tex macros into TeX-style-private. I said "think" because I am now up against the icicles-auctex issue.

Trying to decide whether to insert the patch!

Thanks again

`TeX-macro-private' is unrelated to the macro processor.  The variable
is used for stuff like `TeX-auto-generate-global'.

How did you set `TEXINPUTS'?  Do you start Emacs in way that it can
see the environment variable?  Does it show up if you type
`M-: (getenv "TEXINPUTS") <RET>'?
