Allow me then to quote from the fifth paragraph of the link i sent you:

"The build instructions assume that you are using the bash shell. There is 
also a general expectation that you have already unpacked the sources for 
a package and have performed a cd into the unpacked source directory 
before issuing the build commands."

Note the second sentence. Not only does this apply to binutils but it 
applies to all pacakges in the book.
