Mike didn't go wrong... The thing here is that he didn't try to use  
the Broadcom with XBMC. He was just trying to compile the example that  
is shipped in the drivers package.
I would suggest, however, to use the drivers from git tree:


Then I used Ubuntu Karmic to compile and install the drivers and then  
to grab the latest SVN version of XBMC and compile it. Everything went  
pretty smooth...
