Interesting. In the past, the largest build was glibc and I could do that
in, IIRC, something like 2.3G. Right now, my latest build with jhalfs and
tools present is 3.1G, but that does not include any transient files and
does not include a kernel build.
What I'll do on my next build is to run a script that measures disk usage
every few seconds and log the output. I probably need to go ahead and
update LFS anyway. There are only 4 packages that need to be update and
they are all pretty routine.
