Above you are writing about "checking out".  I'm not sure if you mean
"test" or "check out from CVS".  In the latter case all you need is
the `cvs ...' command.  The stuff below is not necessary.

I don't know about your setup, so it's difficult to comment.  The path
for the --with-emacs option looks like you haven't properly installed
Emacs.  The lispdir you specified is independent of Emacs versions, so
it does not distinguish between "emacs23" and "standard emacs" unless
those are installed below different prefixes.  Info files are nowadays
installed below $PREFIX/share/info.

`make install' is missing.

You could compile different AUCTeX versions with the Emacs with the
lowest version number into separate directories not in load-path and
add only one of those directories to load-path upon start-up.
Personally I would not bother with a parallel installation.
