Could you specify?

There are two things:

1. I don't think __prepemacs should be called for this package because
the compile process explicitly byte compiles most of the *.el files.
There are three (at the top level of /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp) that it
does not byte compile. I don't know the reason, but I don't think the
Cygwin build should override this upstream decision.

The official way to avoid byte compilation is with no-byte-compile[1]. preview-latex.el and tex-site.el are so marked, so they won't be compiled anyway. auctex.el is not so marked, so either there is no reason to not compile it, or else it should also be marked; either way, this should be fixed upstream.

2. I would prefer that __prep_texlive not be called, since it causes the
postinstall script to do unnecessary work. All that's needed for auctex
is mktexlsr.

Then we should figure out how to fine-tune __prep_texlive(). The first mktexlsr is always needed, and the updmap-sys will be limited to packages including Add*Map command(s) per our other thread. Should we limit the fmtutil-sys call to packages including addFormat command(s)? Do any non-texlive packages add anything which would necessitate a call to updmap-sys and/or fmtutil-sys?


(BTW: cygport discussion is on-topic in cygwin-apps; it would be easier for me to have these discussions there.)
