[OS X Emacs] latex compilation in pdf via ps

The simpdftex executable (available in MacTeX and TeXLive) does the  
steps for you.
This is what I do in order to use simpdftex with AucTeX (add it to  
your ~/.emacs file, and you'll find a new menu entry for simpdftex):

(defvar simpdflatex-program
   "simpdftex latex --mode dvips --maxpfb --extratexopts '-synctex=1'  
--distiller ps2pdf14"
   "PDFLaTeX program via dvips")

(defun simpdflatex-command nil simpdflatex-program)

(setq TeX-expand-list
	 (cons '("%(simpdflatex)"  (lambda nil (simpdflatex-command)))

(setq TeX-command-list
	 (cons '("simPDFLaTeX" "%(simpdflatex) %t" TeX-run-TeX nil
		 (latex-mode doctex-mode) :help "Run pLaTeX")

(setq TeX-command-output-list
	 (cons '("simpdftex" ("pdf"))

Skim synchronisation works out of the box for me.
