Yes, psfrag is "supported" as well.

The idea is that if you use a package related to Postscript graphics,
you don't want to start a viewer which is not able to display such
graphics.  Under this assumption, starting dvips and gv would be
considered "normal".

If you don't want that, throw out the entries in `TeX-output-view-style'
which check for PSTricks packages and psfrag.  Either programmatically
like you do below or manually with `M-x customize-variable <RET> ...'.
