Hi Tassilo and Jean-Francois,

In Debian there is an empty /etc/emacs/site-start.el file, but the
directory /etc/emacs/site-start.d has some configuration files.  If a
user installs the "auctex" package, there will be a "50auctex.el" file
in that directory.  This file starts with the following comment:

    ;;; This is a conffile: you can edit it if you like

Thus, users can either customize it in order to load this version of
the package only if there isn't an ELPA package for AUCTeX, or
completely comment the file.

Hope this helps,
