All configuration options used were listed in an attached spec file.
They happen to be:

        --with-emacs \
        --with-auctex-startfile=auctex.el \
        --with-preview-startfile=preview-latex.el \

with the last line carried over from a spec file for auctex-11.53-1.
Admittedly I was not thinking about it too much.

You are right that changing these to

        --with-emacs \
        --with-auctex-startfile=auctex.el \

or even just to '--with-emacs', regardless of hints in INSTALL, will
work in my context just fine without any need of intervention into
makefiles.  Still is somewhat nasty that explicitely stating a
default has such undesirable side-effects; besides somebody could
want to recompile things with a different layout.

One more thing about this spec file I attached in the original
message.  Older versions were creating in %post scripts an
auctex-init.el startup file, or it could have been just added "by
hand".  Now this name has changed.  Therefore it is likely a good
idea to add in a %pre script of auctex-11.81 something of that sort:

  [ -f $oldinit ] && mv $oldinit $oldinit.bak

or equivalent.
