Actually (require 'auctex) does work with the ELPA package *if*
package-initialize was run before (and without a non-nil argument).
Calling package-initialize early on in your ~/.emacs is what should
ideally happen, but IIRC in the OP's case he went to extra length to
disable the normal setup of ELPA packages by calling package-initialize
with a non-nil arg.

Makes sense.

I can't remember enough of how the non-ELPA code works, so feel free to
send me some suggested code or to adjust the code I sent or something.
