I have the following paths set

(setq load-path (cons (expand-file-name "~/emacs/site-lisp") load-path))
(setq load-path (cons (expand-file-name "~/emacs/site-lisp/packages") 
(setq load-path (cons (expand-file-name 
"~/emacs/site-lisp/packages/auctex-11.88")  load-path))
(setq load-path (cons (expand-file-name 
"~/emacs/site-lisp/packages/auctex-11.88/auctex")  load-path))

This *works*!

I can compile latex and use preview.

What does not work is the functionality provided by the files to be
found in the *style* directory. I can load these files *manually* and
then everything works as expected.

But I cannot get them to work *automatically*. If I set a path to the
directory where these files dwell, then I obtain an error on start-up I
described earlier.
