If AUCTeX is working you should see in the mode-line of a tex file 
"[(LaTeX BCite Ref Outl Fly)]." I am using GNU Emacs under X11 and see 
and can access all the extra menus -- but it happens to me too that 
some TeX files are only sparsely colourized ... Elementary syntax only 
like \input, \newenvironment, \newcommand, \addtolength, \title is 
wearing colours. Bold, sans serif, or italic can't be displayed in 
Terminal or Xterm because there are no mechanisms to change the font.

Apple's /usr/bin/emacs works for me without AUCTeX, only RefTeX. I 
don't know the many keybindings so I never wanted to install AUCTeX for 
this version. What I see are colours and bold (intensified) faces that 
come from RefTeX, having '(LaTeX)' or '(LaTeX View)' in the mode-line.
