The general instructions provide the clue needed there, I think.
Each section presupposes that one has untar'd the source, and
then cd'd to the resultant directory, before performing any

Perhaps you mean the reason one needs to get the associated
packages and untar them in the gcc directory? That's simply
a matter of how the FSF decided to package gcc. You'd have
to ask them, not the LFS team.

Oppose globalization and One World Governments like the UN.
