You could combine Matthew's suggestion with the latexmk (comes with 
TeXlive, I think). latexmk compiles latex files automatically, keeps 
track of the dependencies and can do all sorts of cleanup. One feature 
of latexmk that I also really love is the fact that it can run in the 
background and compile the latex code as soon as something changes.
