No.

As the book says (and I'm sure you're just a tad confused
at this point, no big deal), you start in a directory where
the tarball exists.

Then unpack the tarball which creates a directory containing
all the source files. You then change dirs into that new
directory and apply any patches (if necessary).

After that the instructions say to create a build directory
using the .. (parent) notation. Something similar to:

mkdir ../glibc-build

Then you change into that newly created build directory:

cd ../glibc-build

Then continue on with the instructions.

Does this help any?
