You could take a look at my Perl script latexmk. On CTAN it's at
http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/support/latexmk/ It can be
installed by TeXLive 2009 (or you may have it already installed).
To do exactly what you want, you simply run latexmk with the options
-pdf. This overrides latexmk's default of generating a dvi file by
latex instead of a pdf file by pdflatex. A configuration file can be
made to avoid typing options on the command line everytime you use
Latexmk will do a first run of pdflatex. Then it will detect that

repeat the runs of pdflatex as many times as needed to resolve cross
