Hi Ankur,

I think you can go through the FAQ: http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/faq.html
However I feel that the instructions in 5.5.1 should be more clear saying that mpfr & gmp should be extracted in gcc's source directory.

Which mistake did you commit?

I had figured it was a small error somewhere..

Is there some documentation which provides _reasons_ as to what we are
doing? Or do we learn that as we read on?
