TexLive (MacTex) 2007 is the current version, and synctex is not yet  
supported.   It will be included in the 2008 release, which is not yet  

AUCTeX per se does not include synctex support either in its current  
release beyond the customization variable that was mentioned here.

That's why Aquamacs does not support it yet.

Why are you keen on switching to synctex?  What are the advantages  
over pdfsync?  I quickly checked the available info on their site, and  
it doesn't seem like they mention any specific advantages...
