Hi there

How do you tar up the tools directory correctly? I did a

tar -jcpvf tools.tar.bz2 /tools/*

According to the tar help the options is as follows:

j = bz2 compression
c = create
p = keep permisions
v = verbose
f = file

I attempted to rebuild my lfs system with this backup. I restored it to 
/mnt/lfs and followed the book in setting up the environment to build.

When I got to glibc in chapter 6 it threw me in the ./configure stage, 
complaining about how it can't determine the size of a double on my 
machine. What did I do wrong?
