I've implemented it like this.  There is still no support for inverse
search with SyncTeX, i.e. passing the respective options to the viewer.

In `TeX-source-correlate-determine-method' there is a test to determine
if the TeX engine supports SyncTeX.  This basically calls `latex --help'
and searches for the option in the output.  I'm not sure if this is the
best way to do something like this.  So, if somebody has a better idea,
feel free to propose it.
