I've sent the following problem to the macemacsjp-english people and now 
to you, just in case.

Here is my unsuccessful attempt to create a common command latex+dvips+ps2pdf, 
which is with the only purpose to get latex running on files that depend of 
pstrics drawings (which does not work with pdflatex) and  then the final pdf 
file opened with Preview. Hope for help.

I've tried something similar to what Pete suggested for his command
XeLaTeX & xdvipfmx:

1. I opened LaTeX -> Customize AUCTex -> Brows Options
2. I pressed the button Tex Command group -> Tex Command List Show Value
3. I press INS to create the new command and entered:

INS DEL Name: latex+dvips
             Command: latex -output-driver='%(o?)dvips %d -o %f' "%(mode)\input 
             How: Value Menu TeX-run-TeX
             Create a process for NAME using COMMAND to format FILE with TeX.
             Prompt: Toggle  off (nil)
             Modes: Value Menu Set:
             [ ] Plain TeX
             [X] LaTeX
             [X] DocTeX
             [ ] ConTeXt
             [ ] Texinfo
             [ ] AmSTeX
             Menu elements:
Then I get:

Running `latex+dvips' on `lec2' with ``latex -output-driver='dvips lec2.dvi -o 
lec2.ps' "\nonstopmode\input lec2.tex"''
latex: unrecognized option `-output-driver=dvips lec2.dvi -o lec2.ps'

I tried this with and without DocTex checked.
