You should be untaring all packages in the /mnt/lfs/sources directory
and from with in the untared dir you run the commands. 

Such as /mnt/lfs/sources/binutils-2.14/

Linux From Scratch: Version 5.1-pre1

http://lfs.crash404.com/lfs/view/test/chapter05/binutils-pass1.html

The Binutils documentation recommends building Binutils outside of
the source directory in a dedicated build directory:

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

    Note: If you want the SBU values listed in the rest of the book
to be of any use, you will have to measure the time it takes to build
this package. To achieve this easily, you could do something like:
time { ./configure ... && ... && ... && make install; }.

Now prepare Binutils for compilation:

../binutils-2.14/configure --prefix=/tools --disable-nls

So, my question is:
Where should I create binutils-build? /mnt/lfs? or /mnt/lfs/tools?
Where should I unpack Binutils-2.14? In binutils-build?

Thanks
