Why do you think so?  AUCTeX has been supporting source specials for a
long time and SyncTeX is a similar functionality.

For forward or inverse search?

What is "full synctex support"?

In case you are talking about forward search, you can advise e.g. Evince
to open a certain page by providing a command line option.

Probably because Evince did not support this kind of highlighting at the
time I implemented the SyncTeX parser.  But it should not be hard to add

But if Evince opens the right page, then SyncTeX support in AUCTeX is
working, contrary to what you claimed before.
