Thanks for taking care of this, your changes look good to me.

Side comment.  Since AUCTeX is in GNU ELPA and this repository is
activated by default, the installation procedure could be further
simplified to

    M-x package-install RET auctex RET

However, the current procedure makes sure that the latest version of
the package is grabbed (otherwise one may end up with an old one), so
in the end maybe it's better to stick with current procedure.

Let's hope that this will help people that want to install the package!
