I got a hint per PM (thanx!) and added this code to my .emacs:

(eval-after-load "tex"
  '(progn
     (add-to-list
      'TeX-engine-alist
        '(PDF-dev "PDF-dev"
        "pdftex-dev"
        "pdflatex-dev"
        ConTeXt-engine))))
(eval-after-load "tex"
    '(progn
     (add-to-list
      'TeX-engine-alist
      '(Lua-dev "Lua-dev"
        "luatex-dev"
        "lualatex-dev"
        ConTeXt-engine))))

Now I can write

% Local Variables:
% TeX-engine: PDF-dev
% End:

and get the dev version as engine. I never use ConTeXt. 

The menu Command / TeXing Options / lists:
- Use Lua-dev engine
- Use PDF-dev engine
- Use Default engine
- Use LuaTeX engine
- Use Omega engine
- Use XeTeX engine

I recommend trying the devs, to me they seem to be _fast_. 

Thank you by the way for AUCTeX 12.3!

Kind Regards,

Alexander
