(As always, it would be lovely to get a self-contained bug report that
describes what the problem is rather than referring to external sites.)

Anyway, a default build on OS X is now a self-contained Cocoa app.
'make install' assembles the app in nextstep/Emacs.app.
Copy that wherever you like. --prefix is ignored.

If you prefer the old default X11 build, which treats --prefix in the
standard way, configure --without-ns.

This is all explained in NEWS and nextstep/INSTALL, AFAICS.
