I've heard about it only now (sorry for being so behind). It works fine in 
the Terminal. But I do not know how to do it from within Carbon Emacs, 
i.e. (to me, the same as with latex+dvips+ps2pdf), I can't get a Command 
for it: I tried the following and it does not work (it seems, it doesn't 
get its 2nd option):

INS DEL Name: simpdftex
             Command: simpdftex latex --maxpfb "%(mode)\input{%t}"
             How: Value Menu TeX-run-TeX
             Create a process for NAME using COMMAND to format FILE with 
             Prompt: Toggle  off (nil)
             Modes: Value Menu Set:
             [ ] Plain TeX
             [X] LaTeX
             [X] DocTeX
             [ ] ConTeXt
             [ ] Texinfo
             [ ] AmSTeX
             Menu elements:

Then running it gives:
