This is most likely bound to mess with your Darwinports emacs
installation. Even if it doesn't, it's not a good idea to put
stuff  in the Darwinports tree which is not under the port's

I have a Darwinports Carbon Emacs, and auctex+preview-latex
installed in /usr/local. I configured auctex as:

./configure --with-emacs=/Applications/Darwinports/Emacs.app/Contents/MacO S/Emacs' '--with-lispdir=/usr/local/share/emacs/site-lisp' '--with-tex-input-dir s=/usr/local/share/texmf-local

I have a self-installed texlive 2004 in /usr/local/tex. In any
case, you have to tell emacs where to find the new stuff. I

(setq load-path (cons "/usr/local/share/emacs/site-lisp" load-path))
(require 'tex-site)

in my .emacs.

Hope this helps, but as others have suggested, it's better to
subscribe to the macosx-emacs mailing list. Some of the
subscribers are also Darwinports users or developers.
