in fact it is as easy as following the book; the book tells you to jump
into the unpacked directory for all packages. then for glibc it starts
out by creating ../glibc-build and then cd ../glibc-build
then it tells you to start ../glibc-2.3.2/configure <options>

So it turns down to FBBG (Follow book, book good)

waiting down the mountain...
