It depends what you're counting, full sources are a little under 1.5GB,
(that's base system, X, pkgsrc)  /usr/obj (for i386 or amd64) for a full
build of current is around 3GB, (5.1 a little less), about 1GB for a full
install ($DESTDIR), and another 1/2GB approx for the release sets if you
build those (and 700MB or so to build a CD image of everything (the
auto-built CDs mostly omit the source sets and so are smaller).

Add all that together, and you're looking at needing something approaching
10GB, of which about 2GB is more or less permanent (sources and installed
stuff) and the rest either temp use during the build, or build results.
