Open bash, enter

    kpsewhich -expand-var='$TEXMFLOCAL'

and you will find out where your local-texmf resides.  If you pass that
directory to configure, it will install preview files under that
directory.  Ideally, you will have something like this:


Now you can install `texlive-latexextra' and other optional texlive
packages as they do not write into local-texmf directory (hopefully).

That's different question.  The first one was that AUCTeX installs files
into texmf-dist directory and that interferes with a later installation
of `texlive-latexextra'.
