With Emacs you can use local variables to tell AUCTeX which script or  
programme is to be used, as in:

%%% TeX-command-default: "simpdftex"

You can use TeXShop or TeXniscope as DVI viewers – they first convert  
the DVI file to PDF. Or Emacs 23 – it converts DVI (and a few other  
formats) to PNG which it can display a buffer. I'm not sure whether  
the Carbon Emacsen can perform this, the Cocoa (Emacs.app) and X11  
variants can, via the DocView package.
