Boot LFS, login as root
cd /tools
tar -cpvjf /root/tools-after-build.tar.bz2 ./*
cd /root
chmod 600 tools-after-build.tar.bz2

tar -c : create archive
     -p : keep permissions
     -v : be verbose (print which file Iam working on)
     -j : kreate a bzip2 compressed archive
     -f : filename of the created archive
     /root/tools-...  see above
     ./*: files to tar up

I am also one of those, who started as a linux-newbe building LFS:-) 
have to stand together;-)
keep on trying, there is much to learn
