I have

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(setq org-latex-pdf-process '("latexmk -f -pdf -%latex -outdir=%o %f"))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

in my Emacs configuration. The nice thing with latexmk is, that a
single call will suffice. It reads the generated log and checks
whether multiple calls to the LaTeX engine are necessary (after each
run it check whether another run is need, up-to the configurable
maximum of 5 runs). Therefore in some cases (depending on used LaTeX
packages and commands) latexmk may even produce the PDF faster, if
only one or two passes are necessary. But sometimes LaTeX thinks it
may need more passes (e.g. having undefined references, unstable
output due to dynamically generated things at page breaks for example
with cleveref and varioref where floats/references are put on one page
in one run and another page in the following run) - and in these cases
creating the PDF may take a bit longer due to the maximum of 5
(instead of only 3) runs.

Hope that helps a little bit.
