Then perhaps you're not ready for it yet?

How long have you been using:
  • GNU/Linux?
  • Any unix?

Have you tried any other distros?

Linux from scratch is being build with a toolchain, a toolchain is a set of tools, like gcc and binutils, then you if you have a toolchain then you have them to build again with the toolchain.
thats why the directory is called tools, it's simple.
