There is none. Both are (almost) the same:

	cd /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current; ls -l mktexlsr 
	lrwxrwxrwx  1 root  admin     8  1 Nov 12:10 texhash -> mktexlsr
	-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  admin  5310 26 Okt 22:36 mktexlsr

mktexlsr can become a problem when you have more than one teTeX on your 
system, for example Fink's teTeX too. Depending on the search PATH it 
might happen that the other mktexlsr is found first and renews the 
other TeX's files hash. texhash seems to be quite unique (although I 
have to admit that I did not look into Fink's or Darwinport's teTeX 
since a long time), so you're on the secure side with texhash.
