If the admin doesn't want to enable AUCTeX globally (he could simply
remove `suse-start-auctex.el'), it would give the user the change to
proceed as suggested in the manual:

  (load "auctex.el" nil t t)

Maybe it's better to create `suse-start-auctex.el' when preparing or
installing the RPM (similar for preview-latex):

ACK.  (It made sense when David did the release on Fedora.)

I could build RPMs for SuSE and Fedora for 11.81 and upload them to if wanted.  Or is there a plan to do another release soon?
Then it might make more sense to do it only for the next release.

BTW, despite of AUCTeX's tradition of surprise releases it would be
nice to drop a note about an upcoming release on auctex-devel.

Bye, Reiner.
