I'm not a Laywer, but i'd say it depends on the expertise of the person you plan to give it to. If they know Macs well enough, then don't make an account for them (definit no-no). Just clean-reinstall the whole thing.
But you may want to have the iLife bundle un-adopted if you accepted any of the apps already. Also, was there AppleCare on it? I guess it doesnt really matter, since it transfers with the computer anyway, but they may want their own name registered to it, though that doesn't really matter much.
