Thank you Thibaut.  TeX-command-buffer is a very neat solution for when I am 
working on these documents individually and want a quick preview.  Thanks for 
pointing that out.  But if possible, I am looking to automatically generate 
different PDF files (4 in the above example) with one command.

The particular case that I need this is for NIH grant proposals, where they 
need individual documents and one big reference file containing all the 
references throughout out the proposal.
