Right. The /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp hierarchy contains no
byte-compiled files; instead, as described in
/usr/share/doc/emacsen-common/debian-emacs-policy.gz, they go in
parallel trees under /usr/share/xemacs21/site-lisp et al.
However, the Debian auctex package does not bother to byte-compile for
XEmacs, which ends up taking everything other than tex-site (which
contains reasonably version-independent settings) from XEmacs's
bundled version in /usr/share/xemacs21/xemacs-packages/lisp/auctex.

Maybe, though I actually find the current setup to work pretty well,
even if it does take some getting used to at first.
