Use elpa/packages/auctex as the official upstream.

I don't see what prevents it.  AFAICT it still contains all the backward
compatibility code that's in CVS and nobody asked to remove it.
If there are a couple more xemacs-specific files, I have no objection to
you adding them.  The only remaining problem I can imagine is for those
few files which aren't FSF-copyright and hence aren't in the ELPA
package, but IIUC these are obsoletish and could just be dropped (noone
complained about them missing from the ELPA version).
