The `auctex' package in Debian is supposed to be used with Emacs, not
XEmacs. XEmacs provides AUCTeX via its own package system.

XEmacs usually uses ~/.xemacs/init.el as its user init file. (It can
load a ~/.emacs file or convert it to a ~/.xemacs/init.el file under
certain circumstances, though.)
