I didn't try to reproduce the error by installing `auctex-latexmk'
because it's known that AUCTeX sometimes fails to parse the output log
and picks up supp-pdf.mkii as offending file for warnings/errors.
There are some works in progress trying to address this problem, but
I'm not sure they're really still in progress.

BTW, do you know that since version 11.89 there is the new key
bindings C-c C-a that automatically runs all commands needed to
compile the document?  It's much like latexmk, but builtin in AUCTeX
