Where you like. Can be "/vat/tmp/" or "/home/htroost/src/". Just don't
use system directories.

You have to be in the directory where untared the source to.

I don't understand your question. This README has a list of instructions
in a specific order (this order is in general valid). Do as you are told
to do. Don't be "creative" and try first make and then configure. The
order of the given commands does matter. If you get an ordered list of
instructions, why do you feel you will have to puzzle them?
