I think you want

 configure --prefix=<dest dir> --enable-origtree

Do not use --enable-shared.

The `make install' step will put everything you want into <dest dir>
(without unnecessary sources or Subversion info), and the installation
in <dest dir> can be moved.

If you're using the SVN trunk, then the created installation will
include docs. If you're working with the v3 branch, though, you'll want
to install documentation before packing up the installation, since the
docs are not included in an SVN checkout.
