If you want small and fast you can use shallow clone and, although you

know about mercurial's version of this

Its also not worth getting too hung up on small systems being able to check out the source code. Given the memory hog that is GCC these days chances are if you can't check out the source tree you probably can't compile it anyway as GCC will need more memory than your system has.
