 For a C compiler, download one from your host distro.  After (or
before) that, please look at Host System Requirements in the
Preface (page 16 of the PDF).  To be honest, if you have no
experience of compiling, I don't think you will be ready for LFS.

 Paste or copy the whole line, ensuring that any '\' is the last
character.  Most people don't use the PDF, and paste from the html
version in their browser to a term.  Of course, that does assume
you are using a desktop environment which doesn't want to maximize
an application to full-screen.

 I'm also not sure why you would decompress the packages - any
adequate version of tar will cope with all the various forms of
compression, provided the decompressors have been installed [ see
posts from the last 24 hours for which versions of tar are adequate,
in the archives if you weren't subscribed ].
