OK, so there is no problem with TeX itself.
It's either an Emacs package clash, or the AUCTeX packages for Emacs.

That looks fine.

But the tex -> pdf above worked fine. Or do you mean the workflow
imposed by AUCTeX? That seems to be where it tries to detect success.
Does AUCTeX use latexmk to compile with?

I still haven't fully resolved my issues, and it took a friend who is a
serious elisp guru to do enough to get me started. It might not be your
.emacs at all — in my case it was a conflict between one of Emacs'
standard load files and one of the more recent defaults for nxml.
