I hate violence :-)

Seriously, I'm contemplating. I'm not sure it is wise that applications
support emacs-snapshot, especially because it may regularly bring
incompatibilities (like Emacs Lisp ones) and break package upgrades.

The fix itself is easy. Edit /usr/lib/emacsen-common/packages/install/auctex

 case "${FLAVOR}" in
    (emacs) : ;;
-    (emacs21)
+    (emacs21 | emacs-snapshot)
         do_byte_compile ${FLAVOR}
         do_auto ${FLAVOR} ;;
     (*) echo >&2 "install/auctex: Ignoring emacsen flavor ${FLAVOR}." ;;

should work (untested!)
