OK, the problem was mine.  I did activate parsing etc, but was trying to run 
auctex after make and without make install.  there was also some old 
customization I had which highlighted citep without loading the natbib style.  
I've been using auctex for too long without updating my settings.  Thanks for 
helping me to track this down.  given that one can run emacs itself without a 
make-install, wouldn't it be nice if one could do the same with auctex?  
cheers, EU
