I ran out of most of my problem with TeX/LaTeX distribution by installing
everything (I try it but on last rex and on the last ImageMagic CDs on 
another computer). This included the basefonts, mffonts and the metric 
files. If I don't included this ones, I got problems.

Also, they're still  a package who always report a bugs at configuration :
AUCTEX. Can I considered this as a bug reports?
