This is to be expected.  It is a good idea to subscribe to the
auctex-devel list if you are planning to play with the CVS version.
It was announced there that I was seriously going to break things
right now, and I am quite in the process of doing so.  I'll be telling
the developer list when I am through with breaking things, but at that
point of time installation instructions and actual code will still
take time to be brought back into correspondence.

On the positive side: the new installation will include preview-latex
without additional sweat, it will install itself as the default mode
(when site-start.d exists and works as intended) without requiring
user intervention, and it will be easily unloadable either completely
or with a fine-grained selection of modes (like latex-mode -> AUCTeX,
plain-tex-mode -> texmode.el).

In a few days this should stabilize properly.
