6.9. Glibc-2.5.1

I've been working under the assumption that prior to unpacking a 
packages tarball that you create a directory using the package name 
-build ie: glibc-build. Then change to the build directory to unpack the 
tarball, further moving to the first level directory created by the 
action of unpacking the tarball ie: glibc-2.5.1. At least that is the 
way I did it upto this point. I created the package-name-build off of 
the sources directory of which I had at the beginning copied all of the 
original tarballs (source code and patches) from lfs-sources on the 
LiveCD. Now I am at the point of unpacking the glibc-libidn-2.5.1 
tarball, which the instructions are confusing me a little bit as to 
reference where my working directory is actually at. Do I 1st mkdir 
glibc-libidn-build, then cd to that build directory and continue from 
there or do I treat the two packages as 2 separate builds thus creating 
2 separate build directories and unpacking into each seperate directory 
keeping the 2 packages separate? I have already created glibc-build off 
of sources. I don't understand how glibc-libidn gets compiled and 
incorporated into glibc. Do I keep 2 separate build directories?
