OK, this is odd - I now tested the version with raise-frame and it works
with gnome-shell 3.4 (Debian/sid) and 3.8 (experimental), as well as the 
xfce wm, and it works, without wmctrl.  When using a version of auctex with
the odd timestamp calculation when calling evince, this still works, but only
after I somehow switched several times "by hand" between emacs and evince... 
Anyway, that buggy case should be ignored.

Could you please check again that it does not work for you ?

Well, yes, I hoped to find a solution that doesn't rely on external
programs.  Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to be possible.  There's no
DBUS interface for that, and neither does (raise-frame) work.

So I've applied your proposed patch that utilizes wmctrl.

I've already tried that, but it didn't raise the emacs frame.  It seems
`raise-frame' is only usable between multile emacs frames but not
between emacs frames and other X windows, i.e., you can raise one emacs
frame above another emacs frame, but you can't raise it above some other
X window.  The same seems to apply to `focus-frame'.
