Hey all,

From the earlier discussion on this, I got feeling a consensus had
reached that this is a good idea, as long as we check that latexmk is
available first.
As such, here is a patch changing the default LaTeX compiler to latexmk
--- as long as it's available. For what it's worth I've been using this
exact command in my personal config for months now, and it's worked

Subject: [PATCH] ox-latex: Change default compiler to latexmk

* lisp/ox-latex.el (org-latex-pdf-process): Check for the presence of
latexmk when setting the default, and use it when available.  Fall back
to the current default.  This is important for the incoming citation
support, as PDF generation will now need to involve bibliography
generation.  By using latexmk this is taken care of for us.  The -%latex
part of the command is slightly hacky, but allows latexmk to behave more
intelligently for non-pdflatex options.  Note that latexmk also seems to
care about the order of the arguments.
