The following patch solves this problem. Actually html export has no issues
with this.

* lisp/org-latex.el:
  + Modify the custom variable org-latex-to-pdf-process to include
-output-directory option for
     the command pdflatex.
  + org-export-as-pdf()
     Give some respect to  EXPORT_FILE_NAME if it has path elements.
     Modified some of the messages to include the file name.

Thanks and Regards
