Is it okay to run the command on the remote host?  Tramp does this by
default, I hope.  Just hit `!' in dired...

Potential problem: You can't see the result while the command is
executing; you have to wait until it is finished.  Another problem is
that Tramp sets path on the remote host, maybe LaTeX is not in that
path.  See variable tramp-remote-path.  (It's okay to put in entries
that exist only one one machine -- Tramp knows to ignore those
directories on the other machines.)
