I followed the same process you did. 

The emacs that comes with the mac is: GNU Emacs 22.1.1

I've run configure with and without specifying a prefix
./configure --prefix=$HOME --with-jpeg=no --with-png=no --with-gif=no --with-tiff=no

./configure --with-jpeg=no --with-png=no --with-gif=no --with-tiff=no

if I don't add the flags --with-jpeg=no --with-png=no --with-gif=no --with-tiff=no
configure throws an error and tells me to add those flags those flags.

If I don't configure with prefix, I receive no errors on make and (sudo) make install
but when I do emacs --version, i still says 22.1.1, and NOT 23.3

Why bother to respond if that is all you have to say?

Perhaps more productively:  I regularly build emacs on my mac using the
configure, make, make install drill.  I let it default to usr/local/*.  I think
I also have a compiled curses in there too.  Did you try all that already, or
did you download a binary, or what?

I also disable x when I build it.

if you run ./configure --help you will see some useful options
