Currently, a single user install as you've suggested yesterday doesn't
seem to work.  With

  $ ./autogen.sh
  $ ./configure --prefix="$HOME"

the generated Makefile still contains many system directories where
"make install" tries to install files.

prefix = /home/horn$(null)
exec_prefix = ${prefix}$(null)
libdir = ${exec_prefix}/lib$(null)

datarootdir = ${prefix}/share$(null)
datadir = ${datarootdir}$(null)

This might be due to

,----[ (info "(auctex)Configure") ]
|      Only if no workable placement can be found there, in some cases an

but then it should explain what hierarchy it expects in HOME.
