I guess it won't be the last time. ;-)

Me neither, and I guess we would have been made aware of such a breakage
if it would happen for all MacOS X users.  But I think there's something
different gone wonky here.  Lars' backtrace reads

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
Debugger entered--Lisp error: (void-variable LaTeX-preview-setup)
 [latex-mode-abbrev-table text-mode-abbrev-table LaTeX-preview-setup 
define-abbrev-table nil fboundp abbrev-table-put :parents add-to-list 
auto-mode-alist ("\\.drv\\'" . latex-mode) ("\\.hva\\'" . latex-mode) 
declare-function "preview"] 4)
  apply(TeX-latex-mode nil)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Note that it says `void-variable' and not `void-function' as it would
say when you try to eval (this-function-does-not-exist).

Hm, Lars, can you uninstall AUCTeX completely and try the ELPA version?
I.e., just install it using

  M-x package-install RET auctex RET
