There is a kpsewhich.exe but I don't understand how it can be used to
find the texmf roots:

,----[ Output of kpsewhich -help ]
| This program tries to locate a TeXMF related file.

If you call "initexmf --report" you get approx. 14 kB of configuration
infos. The output includes:

,----[ taken from initexmf --report output ]
| TeXMF Roots
| ===========
| #0:  -ld  C:\programme\localtexmf
| #1:  i-d  C:\programme\texmf
|  (i=install root; l=local root; d=fndb exists)

If needed I can send you the full output.

Actually I don't have any instructions in my config files to include
\site-lisp and \site-lisp\auctex in the lisp search path. It always
worked without. In 11.55, tex-mik.elc is also in the /auctex directory
(as you know, of course) and with 11.55 (require 'tex-mik) works - in
the current snapshot it doesn't. Hmmmh ...
