[tex-live] One step closer

Please don't lose patience with me; I'm digging through a lot of docs and
I followed the doc's advice and ran configure with
and let the makefile install the resulting world.
Somehow I don't think that was quite it, because I'm seeing paths that
involve /usr/share/texmf/texmf. Here's a scenario (output broken into
lines for easier reading):
[kenb at metaria texmf]$ kpsewhich -show-path=.fmt
[kenb at metaria texmf]$ tex /home/kenb/story.tex
This is TeXk, Version 3.141592 (Web2C 7.5.5)
%&-line parsing enabled.
kpathsea: Running mktexfmt tex.fmt
/usr/share/texmf/bin/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/mktexfmt: line 331:
/usr/share/texmf/texmf/texconfig/tcfmgr: No such file or directory
fmtutil: config file `fmtutil.cnf' not found.
I can't find the format file `tex.fmt'!
1. I'm not quite clear from the doc how to determine exactly what
subtrees are driven by --prefix and which ones are driven by --datadir.
Or why it looked in /usr/share/texmf/texmf/texconfig instead of
/usr/share/texmf/texconfig where tcfmgr really is. So what made it look
for tcfmgr where it didn't install it?
2. Which makes better sense: to have /usr/share/texmf and
/usr/share/texmf-dist etc. as siblings? Or to have texmf-dist etc. all
exist under an overarching texmf directory?
Thanks to all,
