Be careful about possibly removing stuff that is needed for booting the
system: you 'need' to have at least one verified-ok means of booting
the system.

For removal as asked:
* ref the above lfs url: **BUT** again, be careful; e.g. you normally
  don't want to just remove the '/lib/modules' path.

* ref 'Documentation/kbuild/' files in kernel source tree; usually also
  installed in '/usr/src/linux/Documentation/kbuild/' in live-os.
  Those (few) files give info on the vars (incl default vals) that
  control install locations/&c for the various files/&c that get installed.

> I've deleted /source/linux-4.7.2 after installation.
