Actually, I found a piece of mail from you on bug-auctex.gnu.org that  
fascinates me and, to a point, works well (see below). The only  
problem is that with xe(la)tex it gives an error:

Running `XeLaTeX' on `DavidBakeLoaf_C' with ``xelatex " - 
This is XeTeXk, Version 3.141592-2.2-0.996 (Web2C 7.5.6)
%&-line parsing enabled.
entering extended mode
! I can't find file `" -interaction=nonstopmode"'.
<to be read again>
<*> " -interaction=nonstopmode\input
Please type another input file name:


I think I understand what is happening, but I do not know how to go  
about fixing it.
