Thanks Pete. Which of those is most likely to get rid of the old AucTeX which is unresponsive  to M-x list-packages delete and upgrade actions. I previously had Homebrew make a mess of my fonts.

If re-installing TeX Live and Aquamacs IS sufficient, then I'm inclined to go that route. It is only computer time, and it might have the advantage of cleaning out other mistakes I have made.
