Don't top post!

Just follow the instructions in the book.   What are you trying to do that 
deviates from the book?

tar -xf glibc-2.24.tar.xz
cd glibc-2.24

Now do the instructions exactly as specified in section 6.9:
   That includes the instruction:
     tar -xf ../../tzdata2016f.tar.gz

then when all the instructions are finished:

cd ../..
rm -rf glibc-2.24

Is that so hard?
