If it doesn't "just work", please report it as a bug.
There are indeed problems when using Custom for some of package.el's
customization variables, but for `package-archives' I am not aware of
any special problems.

None of those calls pays attention to package-archives, so if there's
a problem it must be elsewhere.

This probably had nothing to do with your setting of package-archives.
And without knowing more about how your older installation fo AUCTeX is
added to load-path, there's not much we can say.
