So far, there's only AUCTeX in this situation, IIUC, and the two
distribution co-exist (i.e. the ftp site is the official AUCTeX
release, where the GNU ELPA site is just a packaging of that release).

These are all packaging the same 11.87 release.  Just with some
packaging errors fixed along the way.  They may also contain local
fixes, tho.
