I already replied to that, quoting the description in the spec file.

preview-latex does not pick its files from the texmf tree, but from
AUCTeX's own copies of the files, stored outside the texmf tree, in
the Emacs tree.

preview-latex will work perfectly well without installing the
preview-tetex package.  That's the story told by the dependencies (or
rather the lack of them) and the package descriptions as well.

It would be worse than completely pointless to install versioned
directories in previewtexmfdir: after that, it would be unpredictable
which versions got picked up by normal TeX runs.
