I did all the steps well without error before this step

any reason why you want to compile your own rather than just install it from the repos ?
sudo apt-get install xbmc

Actually to install the latest XBMC this are the steps you need to type in terminal, Make sure you type them one by one
sudo apt-get install python-software-properties pkg-config
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-xbmc/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xbmc
