[lfs-support] Installing 'Binutils' -- './configure' No such file or directory

I've run into a problem trying to configure the 'binutils' package.

Note: I'm working on Section 5.3.1 (Compiling Binutils) of LFS version 6.3;
my host is lfs-livecd x86_64-6.3-r2145 on an HP Pavillion a1200e - AMD

I unpacked the 'binutils-2.17.tar.bz2' package, then I created the
'../binutils-build' directory, and changed to it; but I got the following
error message when I tried to run './configure':

bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

There is a 'configure' script in the 'binutils-2.17' directory; should I
run the './configure' command in that directory, or is there some other
step I'm missing?

Also, I'm a bit confused by the options for './configure':

CC="gcc -B/usr/bin/" ../binutils-2.17/configure --prefix=/tools
--disable-nls --disable-werror
I assume that this line is placed where the ellipsis occurs in the 'time'
command. If not, when should I enter it?
