These first setting is definitely wrong! The second one is inside  
your home directory, so one might accept this.

You have to give every user on your system the x permission to search  
for a file, particularly to find some part of Ghostscript. If you  
want to make your system secure, then use ACLs or ACEs to modify  
*write* or *delete* or *change* permissions.

Before you start to maltreat your system you should spend some time  
with UNIX reading and understanding. The incorrect settings might  
also prevent AUCTeX from finding any documentation.
