AUCTeX does not work correctly because tex-site.el uses the wrong value 

(defvar TeX-lisp-directory 

This and another variable should be set like this:

(defvar TeX-lisp-directory 
(defcustom TeX-auto-global 

Then we have in site-start.el

(setq ispell-program-name "aspell")

but it seems that aspell is unusable -- and I prefer ispell, which 
works, so need to comment this line. Then sometimes a Japanese mode 
start when I type C-s ... It's not that much, I think.

The Carbonization of the Japanese Carbon Emacs goes quite far in that
