When installing a package from the package menu, can/will
package-install do automatic byte compilation of the installed package files? Or is this something the user must do manually himself afterwards?
For example, I have installed
auctex from the package menu, but there are no
*.elc files in my
~/.emacs.d/elpa/auctex-11.89.5 directory. Also I see from the source of
package.el that there is a function
package--compile at line 942 (so that should indicate that it can byte-compile)
There is no mention of byte-compilation in the Manual as far as I can see.
I am also wondering that I might have deleted the
*.elc files myself and forgotten about it.
