`auto-save-list-file-prefix' does not do that. It controls the path
for auto-save files, but there are many packages that use the value of
`user-emacs-directory', so you cannot rely on auto-save-list-prefix to
determine whether ~/.emacs.d will be created or not.

Yes, this is really a regression. It is caused by this change:

2009-08-29  Stefan Monnier  <address@hidden>

        * paths.el (abbrev-file-name): Move to abbrev.el.
        * abbrev.el (abbrev-file-name): Move from paths.el.
        Obey user-emacs-directory.
        * calc/calc.el (calc-settings-file): Don't autoload and instead obey
        user-emacs-directory.
        * dos-fns.el (dos-reevaluate-defcustoms): Don't reevaluate
        abbrev-file-name and calc-settings-file any more.
        * startup.el (command-line): Recompute abbrev-file-name and
        abbreviated-home-dir.
        [...]
