I've finally gotten around to getting a modem hooked up to my NetBSD
machine, and I'd like to start tracking -current a little more closely.
However, the only thing I'm not sure of is whether or not I'll have
adequate space. My system has about fifty megs of space available on one
drive, and about fifty on another. My /tmp drive is an old twenty-megger,
so I doubt it would be of much help.

How much space does a full source code set require? What's the peak space
needed during a build? With the relatively limited amount of space I have
available, does building the system on my home machine seem feasable?

I might be able to free up a bit more space than what I've described by
clearing out stuff in my /home area, but I doubt I'd be able to free up
more than ten or so more megs.

Thanks in advance for the information.
