[AUCTeX-devel] Two odd features with "new" installation procedure

First time I tried the new installation procedure (CVS, autogen, combined with 
preview).  Two comments:

0. ./configure produces the following error/warning: error: possibly undefined macro: AS_HELP_STRING

1. After running "./configure" (with approximately right parameters), 
"make install" fails with an odd error:  While trying to compile tex.el
(or maybe some file that does (require 'tex)) it complains that
AUC-TeX-version is an unknown variable.  Strangely, if I do "make" followed by 
"make install", the problem goes away.  Is this a bug or a feature?

2. Finally, since I have always used (require 'tex-site) to load AUCTeX and I 
heard that "auctex.el" is the new right creature to load, I stupidly put 
(require 'auctex) in my .emacs, which promptly produced a complaint that 
loading auctex failed to define the feature 'auctex!  Is this something that 
should be fixed, or should I just replace "require" by "load"?


PS. CVS of a few minutes ago
PPS. So I cannot count... :-)
