The current Debian AUCTex package depends upon emacs21 or
emacs-snapshot and says in its description

        Currently XEmacs ships with its own AUCTeX, so this package
        should only be used with GNU/Emacs. (I.e., you don't need to
        install this package if your site uses only XEmacs.)

and the package maintainers have consistently rejected 'Wontfix'
wishlist bugs to depend upon XEmacs.  See for example Debian bug

        Last time I checked xemacs21 shipped with its own auctex.  I
        will check again, and if this is the case no more I will add
        xemacs21 to the next package version.

It looks like the AUCTex now packaged with the Debian xemacs21 package
is v11.55.
