I'm not sure if I understood your question/problem correctly, so let me
restate it: Running configure script for AUCTeX installs LaTeX related
files for Preview in a way that your TeXlive gets upset.  If this is
correct, you can

a) Tell configure to install the files into your local texmf or home
   texmf tree (depending on your preference).  You can pass the value to
   configure with something like (untested):

   ./configure --other-opts \
     --with-texmf-dir=`kpsewhich -expand-var='$TEXMFLOCAL'`

  ./configure --other-opts \
    --with-texmf-dir=`kpsewhich -expand-var='$TEXMFHOME'`

b) Gain even more controll by setting


   If you want to specify an exact directory for the preview TeX files,
   use --with-tex-dir=/dir.  In this case, the files will be placed in
   `/dir', and you’ll also need the following option:


   This option may be used to specify where the TeX documentation goes.
   It is to be used when you are using --with-tex-dir=/dir, but is
   normally not necessary otherwise.

I used method b) for a long time to install AUCTeX.
