The numbers are "0" because this is not yet the final build, right?

Definitely.  Uh, uhm.  This is somewhat embarrassing, but I should
have a Fedora partition on my hard disk, something between Core 2 and
Core 4 (don't remember exactly, and it was rawhide for a while).  It
should be good for testing this as well as how graceful the
installation deals with previous versions of AUCTeX/preview-latex.

I never booted the partition on my current system, so I can't vouch
that it will really work.  But if you mail me a signed rpm, I could
give it a try.  If the stuff builds on a bonafide Fedora system, I'd
prefer to have the stuff built there, though, since I have no idea
what version would correspond to my partition.  But for testing, my
setup should be good enough.

Send me a signed rpm or alternatively, a signed mail containing the
rpm by mail, and I'll give it a try.
