GNU AUCTeX 11.88 is 2 years old now.  I really hope Debian won't be
distributing such an outdated version given that 11.89 is nearly one
year old already.

Do yourself (and us as GNU AUCTeX maintainers) a favor and skip distro
packages in favor of GNU ELPA.  Debian testing ships Emacs 24.5 which
contains the Emacs package manager.

,----[ (info "(auctex)Installation") ]

Then you don't need any special configuration of load-path and friends
and it'll just work.  And in case you spot a major bug, we're gonna fix
it as soon as possible and simply release a new ELPA version which is a
very simple procedure compared to standalone releases.  The current ELPA
version is 11.89.5 containing many new features and tons of fixes
compared to 11.89 or even 11.88.
