    The supplied "configure --help" gives the default --prefix dir as


    and sometimes in the documentation it gives a
    /usr/local/texlive/2005 as the prefix dir (I think).  

That's the default in the TL installation script.  It is unrelated to

    though it says for MacOs is /usr/local/teTex.

It's a long story.

    Is there any preferrances for the top level directory?

You can choose anything you want.  I advise something with the release
year (2005) in it.
