I fail to see why this is necessary. I would expect anyone who visits
the BLFS book to at least know how to unpack a tarball. The only times
it is really used is when we want to unpack the tarball to another
directory, i.e., /usr/share/ghostscript/fonts. There has to be a balance
between providing too much information and providing too little.
