Sorry this was wrong.

Ignore the /usr/obj part! I also had the obj/ directories with the
.o files in the /usr/src tree.

Also, deduct 9 MB from the /usr/src/ tree
for my personal kernel build.

And deduct 217 MB, because my install and release (binary tar sets) were
also under my /usr/src directory.

You asked "how big a /usr/src tree gets at the most?" and "please include"
the .o files. I believe mine gets to 887 MB.

Maybe I am misunderstanding something. This includes all the source, .o
files and final executables when building the entire i386 release. This
includes multiple kernels, games, X, gcc, floppy images, etc. I may have
done this wrong. I used "BLOCKSIZE=1048576 du -s ..." and
"BLOCKSIZE=1048576 df" (because my /usr/src is its own partition). What is
the correct way to measure this?
