BTW, I've found a rather easy way to get Emacs and PDFView jumping to the 
appropriate page in the PDF, or resp., location in Emacs. The following 
should be done once per a tex file:

- activate gwTeX distribution
- put the following line in the tex preamble and uncomment it:

\usepackage{pdfsync}    %% with TeXLive-2007 (and up)

- run, for ex., in the Terminal:

texdist --texdist=TeXLive-2007 pdflatex '<file>.tex'

(I have created an AUCTeX commands in Emacs for versions of simpdftex in 
gwTeX and TeXLive-07, which makes it even easier.)

pdfsync creates <file>.pdfsync which is responsible for the search 
jumping. As long as you keep this file, you can switch back to gwTeX, but

- comment out:

%\usepackage{pdfsync}    %% with TeXLive-2007 (and up)
