I would do the following:
1. clone 'bare' git repo like
  $ git clone --mirror URL $HOME/repo/auctex
2. cd to "build" directory:
  $ cd $HOME/build/
3. clone source to this dir:
  $ git clone file:///$HOME/repo/auctex auctex
4. build the package:
  $ cd auctex
  $ ./
  $ ./configure --prefix=$HOME
  $ make
5. install the package:
  $ make install
6. [optionally] delete the build dir;
7. start fresh Emacs session and check that auctex files under $HOME are
   first in 'load-path'
8. if not, change the '.emacs' file;
9. test the installation by a tex file.

Pro: the 6. item will guarantee that the will be no leftover from
previous build and the build is "clear".

Con: you will have to "manually" update the repo: git fetch --all -p
(may be it is not minimal command, I use that).

Then you can narrow down the source of your trouble and ask more
concrete question.
