So I'd thought! It would have been way out of keeping with Aquamacs' general ease of use.

Well, also being a Linux user since 1996 I'm certainly not averse to getting under the hood, but in this case your impression is exactly correct!

HOWEVER: I just figured it out!  Recalling that customizations.el had caused problems in the past when I've upgraded, I just now clobbered it, restarted Aquamacs, and cranked up a LaTeX file.  Ctrl-c Ctrl-c brought up Skim by default.  Search and inverse search are are also working great.  All is well!  Sorry for the false alarm...
