I am somewhat surprised since the upstream AUCTeX source includes an
XEmacs package in the Makefile that does come with the documentation

Their package format has been designed with one goal being not to have
the GPL compliance police breathe down the XEmacs developers' necks, so
it would seem fair that we ourselves try to meet the standards others
can reasonably expect to be subjected to by us.
