How do you read BLFS on that system?
Assuming, you are using Links or Lynx, you can of course use that browser for downloading.
When using Links (my preferred first browser on a new system),
you can type "d" to download the currently selected link.
(Or type <Esc> to open the menu ...)
If not set otherwise, the file will be downloaded to the folder that was current, when the browser was started.
may help in doubt.
Links can also be used to browse through your file system.
(Somewhat easier than only using cd and ls ;-))
When building LFS systems, I always watched those tips from
9.3. Rebooting the System

The GPM package will also allow you to perform copy/paste actions in your virtual terminals.
I always installed gpm (a mouse tool that can be used for copying between virtual consoles)
first, then links.
This way links will get mouse support by default.
I set Text margin to 1 in the Html options, so that I can get the unmodified code copied.
(Else there might be some extra spaces or similar,
that can sometimes be disruptive.)
If not having any tool for accessing the internet
on the new system yet (lynx, links, curl, wget, ...),
I would find a way to access the required sources
by some other means.
Perhaps by downloading them with a life cd,
then install what is needed/wanted, the usual way...
I hope that helps.
