I use a Makefile to export to latex, then I use pdflatex to compile
the final version. Org does the same thing if you ask it to go
straight to PDF, but this lets me include my revision number.

This also launches my pdf viewer (xpdf), and works for every .org file
in the directory.

.PHONY: all clean

OBJS := $(patsubst %.org, %.pdf, $(wildcard *.org))

CRAP := $(patsubst %.org, %.pdf, $(wildcard *.org))
CRAP += $(patsubst %.org, %.aux, $(wildcard *.org))
CRAP += $(patsubst %.org, %.log, $(wildcard *.org))
CRAP += $(patsubst %.org, %.out, $(wildcard *.org))
CRAP += $(patsubst %.org, %.toc, $(wildcard *.org))

all: $(OBJS)

        rm -f $(CRAP)

%.tex: %.org
        emacs -batch \
                -load ~/.emacs \
                --eval '(setq enable-local-variables :all)' \
                --visit=$< \
                -f org-export-as-latex \

%.pdf: %.tex
        pdflatex "\\def\\Revision {`bzr version-info --custom 
--template=\"{revno}\" $<`}" "\\input{$<}"
        pdflatex "\\def\\Revision {`bzr version-info --custom 
--template=\"{revno}\" $<`}" "\\input{$<}"
        xpdf $@
