Thanks for the suggestions: I've tried simple Makefile rules and
latexmk myself in the past. They do sort-of work, but I found each
method lacking in some aspect. Simple makefile rules require one to
always run the full latex-bibtex-latex-latex run, which takes too long
to wait for when writing a document and generating output every minute
or so; it also misses dependency tracking for included files. Latexmk
indeed is more powerful, but I recall it being too much work to setup
for each simple document.

I'm asking here, because I find AUCTeX's features in this respect
best, but I noticed this missing feature.

I will have a look at the suggestion of texidvi; I didn't know that
