So that you can use the packages in chroot...
Packages need to be on your LFS partition, which isn't mounted at all
beforehand. :)  You'd have to do something similar if you do it
manually. Esp. with the bootcd -- can't unpack them where they're at.
You could just untar them to the LFS partition, but then you're not
guaranteed fresh source trees before you build each package, which is
necessary at times because of various patches that are needed in one
part of the book, but not the other.

Thanks, feels like there's lots to fix. :)
