Ok... I've built a couple of beamer engines.

beamer.engine is a trivial copy of a pdflatex run but without the  
synctex option set.

beamermk.engine is an adaptation of the pdflatexmk engine but, again,  
without the synctex option set. Use this to automatically make all  
necessary runs of pdflatex to resolve references using latexmk.

You can pick up the engines a BeamerEngines.zip at <http://homepage.mac.com/herbs2 

Good Luck,
