Because you untarred as root.
Open a terminal, login as root, cd to the place where the files are located, and delete them.

There is a README.ubuntu file in that untared folder, read it carefully, the steps to install it are mentioned there.

Do as a normal user.
1. Download that xbmc software in your home folder.
Code:
cd ~
tar -xf xbmc-9.11.tar.gz
cd xbmc-9.11/
cat README.ubuntu

http://wiki.xbmc.org/?title=HOW-TO_i...n_step-by-step
sudo apt-get install python-software-properties pkg-config
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xbmc xbmc-standalone
>>> 20 packages, dependencies included : Only 43.3 MB to download.

→ Seconds with a fast internet,
a little more time with your phone connection, I guess.

P.S.: Building xbmc from source is difficult.
( Is for experts with years of experience ? )
The testbuild, I made four days ago (see post #11, xbmc svn ):
140 dependencies, some built from source.
