It is not clear to me why the act of importing a runnable version of
AUCTeX into ELPA should be precluded from running a Makefile rule.  It
is not like ELPA can directly access git repositories and extract
whatever it wants, so the import will always involve explicit steps.

preview-latex is an integral part of AUCTeX by now.  That involved
moving files, dependencies, combining documentation and so on.  Ripping
it out of ELPA is not just going to be work, but is also not extremely
likely to make people happy.
