Well, first of all I have to apologize for not having been able to
submit the desired patch in due time. However thanks to Mats Lidell we
have an almost working solution (save a patch which should be applied to
XEmacs.rules). It is however not clear right now, whether this patch
will be accepted or another solution should be found. In any case I will
submit that patch tomorrow, (my workload has been high in the past
months) and hopefully within a couple of days we will have a working
solution. Once that is settled further synchronization should be easy
(given that the Installation process will not be changed again).

I all the time have benefit from your generous support of XEmacs and
appreciate that a lot. It is true there was no real Xemacs hacker (save
Nick for a time) actively contribution code to auctex. The best I could
offer myself would be testing, some contributions to style files but
unfortunately not more.

So given that we will have a working solution soon I would like to ask
you, not to stop  the support you have given so far to XEmacs.

Thank you very much
