testing - Section 6.11

I just noticed that glibc in Chapter 6 has the command:

tar xjvf /sources/glibc-linuxthreads-2.3.4.tar.bz2

Using tar with old bsd style options is depricated.  The tar info page says:

"Like short options, old options are single letters.

Old options are kept for compatibility with old versions of `tar'."

For educational purposes, there should be a dash before the options: -xjvf
