Depends to some extent on the architecture you're building for, since
the RISCer the machine, the bigger binaries tend to be.
I just did a du on my sun3 /usr/src, which still contains everything
generated by "make build" (but no kernel build), and I get 171244. So
200MB would probably be a nice round figure.
Of course, if you want to include the space you need to run the system,
you'll need more. Again, it'll depend on the architecture to some
extent; the sun3 snapshot I started with fits in 50MB. And don't
forget that you'll need some swap space too - probably at least 16Mb,
