The lists have always worked this way.

Then run xcode-select --install, and click the Install button to install the required command line developer tools. Don't worry if you see a message telling you the software cannot be installed because it is not currently available from the Software Update Server. This usually means you already have the latest version installed. You can also get the command line tools from the Apple developer website.

You're right, it looks like after Apple changed Xcode to require users to accept a license agreement, the guide was not updated to include instructions for doing that. Also, the guide neglects to instruct users to open Xcode.app once after installation.
