  -EWRONG_LIST ?  Seriously, all problems to do with building the book 
are usually answered more quickly on lfs-support.

  In this case, I think you've overlooked one of the initial 
expectations.  The book expects you to build below /sources, and to cd 
into each directory that you create.  So, for binutils you run tar -xvf 
on the tarball [ hmm, might need -j as well for a .bz2 at this stage ], 
then you cd binutils-, then you follow the instructions:

mkdir ../binutils-build
cd ../binutils build

At that point, you are in /sources/binutils-build and the source is in
