That's very odd...over here it definitely creates PDFs correctly if
you put the [pdftex] argument in the \documentclass command, and I
just made up a Beamer presentation the other day. However, it still
says "latex" is the default compiler when I hit C-c C-c...but the
output is definitely straight to PDF. Are you using any packages
that might conflict with this behavior?
