The tar command was to be installed in LFS-6.3 chapter 5.27
glibc-libidn would be in LFS-6.3 chapter 6.9.1 using the tar installed by chapter 5.
Check that tar was actually installed as stated in chapter 5.
Check your path for misspelling.

You are using a version different from the released book. Use the version in the book to avoid unknown complications later on. It is definitely the easiest way, the tested way.
