(default-value 'tool-bar-mode) ?  Why that?  Why not just tool-bar-mode?

This seems to have the disadvantage that if people subsequently switch
the toolbar on, the LaTeX toolbar won't appear.

So perhaps we should register

and let LaTeX-maybe-install-toolbar check LaTeX-enable-toolbar and
call LaTeX-install-toolbar only when it is active.

LaTeX-maybe-install-toolbar and LaTeX-enable-toolbar would be defined
in latex.el.
