Is there a certain reason you're trying to build it yourself ? Following 3.1 works good enough for me;

sudo apt-get install ros-electric-openni-kinect

Remember its either 3.1 or 3.2, it is not necessary to do both.

Thank you I was confused. I was thinking I need to follow 3.1 and 3.2 as well. Thank you for you answer.
