Probably not only customized but bound in general.

I haven't checked if a wrongly set variable contributes to the
problems Ardi has.  But failing to load preview-latex.el certainly
does.  And checking if variables are bound won't help in this case.
Of course if such a variable is found it may indicate problems with
configuration, but unrelated to a subsystem not being loaded.

An idea would be an interactive configuration/installation routine:

  The following questions will query which parts of AUCTeX should be
  activated by default.  If you answer yes to any of these questions a
  site-start.d directory will be created and your site-start.el file
  will be modified to evaluate files found therein if it is not
  already set up like this.

  Do you want AUCTeX to be activated by default? [y/N] y

  Do you want preview-latex to be activated by default? [y/N] y

  Shall I install TeX files of preview-latex into the
    Emacs tree?  (Default is to install into TeX tree.) [y/N]


Hmmm, we could do the activation stuff with non-interactive
--force-activate-{auctex,preview} switches for configure as well, I
