I looked at the spec file from the released tarball (not entirely
unreasonable behaviour IMO).

OK - I will give the CVS spec file a whirl when I have a chance.
However, the spec file from the release tarball fails to build on
fedora, and taking a (brief) look now at the CVS spec file, I think it
will bomb out in the same way - as I recall it tries to install files
directly into the tree, not into the buildroot - this is why I
installed preview into the tetex tree, as naively I assumed that was
the right place to put it.

Ah, ok. I had read in the documentation on the auctex website that you
discouraged breaking the tarball into separate packages for auctex and
preview-latex. I do not have access to the documentation at the
moment, but it seems clear I need to study the "Advice for package
providers" carefully.

Thanks again for the advice, I'll try and do a better job of the next
spec version.
