Xen can be normally installed via the repository packages in VirtualBox. So you could be able to install the hypervisor and utils via apt-get:

apt-get install xen-system-amd64

So it could be that you have to change the boot order:

mv -i /etc/grub.d/10_linux /etc/grub.d/50_linux

If you want to build Xen 4.2 from source install the packages which are needed to build as mentioned in the Wiki:

apt-get install build-essential
apt-get install bcc bin86 gawk bridge-utils iproute libcurl3 libcurl4-openssl-dev bzip2 module-init-tools transfig tgif 
apt-get install texinfo texlive-latex-base texlive-latex-recommended texlive-fonts-extra texlive-fonts-recommended pciutils-dev mercurial
apt-get install make gcc libc6-dev zlib1g-dev python python-dev python-twisted libncurses5-dev patch libvncserver-dev libsdl-dev libjpeg62-dev
apt-get install iasl libbz2-dev e2fslibs-dev git-core uuid-dev ocaml ocaml-findlib libx11-dev bison flex xz-utils libyajl-dev
apt-get install gettext

Download and untar the tarball:

wget http://bits.xensource.com/oss-xen/release/4.2.0/xen-4.2.0.tar.gz
tar zxvf xen-4.2.0.tar.gz

Then run the configure script and compile everything, I recommand you use the deb target which builds a Debian Package of the distribution (you have to install additional packages by your self):

make deb

The package than is located in the dist directory. Make sure that the boot order is changed like mentioned above (the update-grub2 script failes because of symlinks which have not the correct format for this script, so edit the bootloader config manually or simply delete them which should be no problem).
