As you built your Emacs and haven't installed AucTeX, then you're using Emacs' LaTeX mode.

Just a few advices:
Installing AucTeX on the Mac is not as straightforward as on Debian, for example, where with just
make ;; and, becoming root,
make install ;; But see below
you're done. First, on the Mac, configure will find Apple installed Emacs in /usr/bin, not the Emacs.app in /Applications, so you have to configure
but then it won't find the proper site-lisp, so you have to use also the option
Finally, and this *also* happens in Debian, for example, AucTeX will install preview.sty and related files in
(that is, if you're using TeXLive 2009). But tlmgr (TeXLive manager), or it's front-end TeX Live Utility, installs preview.sty and related files in
So, to avoid this, you can make AucTeX to install these files within Emacs for its private use:
See the documentation ``INSTALL'' for these and other options.
I would advice you to make a copy of your Emacs.app and keep it around until you're satisfied with your Emacs with AucTeX.
