I just noticed that tlmgr and AucTeX install preview.sty (et al.) in two different branches of the TeXLive tree (in Debian, but I guess it might be the same in other distros).

I had done a tlmgr update of TeXLive a few days ago (24 Feb), and yesterday I updated AucTeX (from 11.85 to 11.86).

tlmgr had installed preview.sty 11.86 (et al.) in


whereas AucTeX installed it in


kpsewhich shows that the one used is


that is, the one installed by AucTeX; both are, as said, v11.86. I think it would be better if both installers look into the same branch to do the updates.
