"generally" everyone (or the book assumes) that your compiling all
software from $LFS/usr/src

so.. your structure would be like this


where $LFS/usr/src can change... doens't matter much

tar zxf glibc-2.1.3.tar.gz
cd glibc-2.1.3
tar zxf glibc-linuxthreads-2.1.3.tar.gz
tar zxf glibc-crypt-2.1.3.tar.gz

That should cover it...
