No this is not a typo it is an instruction. You may want to review UNIX 
Read the text before copying and pasting the commands. You are supposed to  
decide where you want to install XORG before running the commands. "<PREFIX>"

You are not installing a package at this point so there is no ./configure. You 
are only setting up the environment for the XORG build. You may want to read the 
text rather than just copying and pasting everything.
