Dear Serdar,

I'm not sure I understood your question perfectly, but I have the following 
code in my .emacs to integrate Sweave with AucTEX:

(setq TeX-file-extensions
       '("Snw" "Rnw" "nw" "tex" "sty" "cls" "ltx" "texi" "texinfo"))
(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.Rnw\\'" . Rnw-mode))
(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.Snw\\'" . Snw-mode))
(add-hook 'Rnw-mode-hook
(lambda ()
   (add-to-list 'TeX-command-list
	       '("Sweave" "R CMD Sweave %s"
		 TeX-run-command nil (latex-mode) :help "Run Sweave") t)
   (add-to-list 'TeX-command-list
	       '("LatexSweave" "%l %(mode) %s"
		 TeX-run-TeX nil (latex-mode) :help "Run Latex after Sweave") t)
   (add-to-list 'TeX-command-list
	       '("RubberSweave" "rubber -d %s && xpdf '%s.pdf'" TeX-run-command 
nil t) t)
   (setq TeX-command-default "Sweave")))

You can skip the rubber line if you're not using it. What it does is 
allowing the user to Sweave a Rnw document using a plain 'C-c C-c' as one 
would do to compile a LaTeX document.

See here for more details: 
(I can see that the code has been updated)

Does this help?
