I'm wondering if some re-wording, and verbose tar is worth considering

To re-emphasize the build process:

1 / Place all the sources and patches in a directory that will be
accessible from the chroot environment such as /mnt/lfs/sources/. Do
not put sources in /mnt/lfs/tools/.
2 / Change to the sources directory.
3 / For each package:
a / Using the tar program, extract the package to be built. In Chapter
5, ensure you are the lfs user when extracting the package.
   < some wordy bit about finding the relevant tarball for the section >
   then an example

   for example:
   tar vxf example-1.2.3.tar.gz
b / Change to the directory created when the package was extracted.
    for example:
    cd example-1.2.3/
c /Follow the book's instructions for building the package.
d /change back to the sources directory.
     cd ../
e /Delete the extracted source directory and any <package>-build
directories that were created in the build process unless instructed
    rm -rf  example-1.2.3/

I know it all seems very basic , but obviously some are getting lost
Talented, Witty And Thoughtful .. is how most describe me.
