Part of the problem is that if you have previous runs, the aux file and such
are going to be present and they will need cleaning up no matter what you
do at the org level.

Purely at the org level, there may be a better way, but this is what I
came up with: you can hack around this by defining your own
"class". E.g. in your org file you say

#+LaTeX_CLASS: myclass

and you add a definition for ``myclass'' to org-export-latex-classes,
something like this (I just copied the ``article'' entry, modified the name
and added the babel stuff - and you probably still need to add
the \selectlanguage more-or-less by hand, but I guess you can do it at the
org level):

(add-to-list 'org-export-latex-classes
     ("\\section{%s}" . "\\section*{%s}")
     ("\\subsection{%s}" . "\\subsection*{%s}")
     ("\\subsubsection{%s}" . "\\subsubsection*{%s}")
     ("\\paragraph{%s}" . "\\paragraph*{%s}")
     ("\\subparagraph{%s}" . "\\subparagraph*{%s}")))

Does this help?
