I have no macos, so I can just give you some general pointers:

I am trying to install auctex to Mac OS X 10.6.4 and having some trouble.
After installing MacTeX and Emacs 22.3.1, I downloaded auctex-11.86.tar.gz which appeared in the directory ~/Downloads. When I typed './configure' in that directory (using Terminal), an error message returned as below:

checking for make... no
configure: error: make not found, aborting!

You don't have the program "make", you need to install it...
Realizing that there was already an auctex directory under Emacs, i.e., /Applications/, I typed './configure' in that directory only to get " ./configure: No such file or directory ". So, I replaced the contents of this directory with the newly downloaded auctex-11.86. Then, the configure command returned the first error message above again.

maybe auctex is already installed and the installed files are located in that directory?


 (require ’tex-site)

in your .emacs file to test it...
What am I doing wrong? (I followed the instruction at AUCTeX website, but I am new to this so maybe missing something obvious.)
