Exactly the same you use: Seiji Zenitani's Carbon Emacs. As for the  
configuration, I use TeXniscope as my DVI viewer and TeXShop as the  
PDF viewer: in my .emacs

1) I load Prof. Enrico Franconi's Enhanced Carbon Emacs plug-in:

2) Then I set the viewers, the path for my ~/emacs directory and  
forward/inverse search for xdvi and TeXniscope:

(setq pdf-previewer-program "open -a TeXShop")    ;; I don't know if  
these two really work,
(setq dvi-previewer-program "open -a texniscope") ;; but anyway, I  
have them here.
(setq-default TeX-master nil)                     ;; In order to set  
the master per project
(require 'tex-site)
(add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "~/emacs/"))
(require 'xdvi-search)
(require 'txs-search)
(add-hook 'LaTeX-mode-hook
           '(lambda nil
             (define-key LaTeX-mode-map [f1] 'xdvi-jump-to-line)))
(add-hook 'LaTeX-mode-hook
           '(lambda nil
             (define-key LaTeX-mode-map [f2] 'txs-jump-to-line)))

3) And, finally, I borrowed an idea from Jan Anderssen

to add commands in my .emacs file instead of tinkering with  
customizing AUCTeX:

(require 'tex-site)
(add-hook 'LaTeX-mode-hook
(function (lambda ()
(add-to-list 'TeX-expand-list '("%g" file "pdf" t))
(add-to-list 'TeX-command-list '("pdfLaTeX" "pdflatex --shell-escape % 
t" TeX-run-interactive nil t))
(add-to-list 'TeX-command-list '("PDFView" "open -a %g"  
TeX-run-command t nil))
(setq TeX-command-default "pdfLaTeX")
(setq TeX-command-next "PDFView")
(define-key LaTeX-mode-map [f3] 'do-pdflatex)
(defun do-pdflatex ()
"pdflatex con shell escape."
(TeX-command "pdfLaTeX" 'TeX-master-file))
