750MB if plenty of space, as long as you don't waste it, eg don't have
extra source treee's unpacked you aren't working with, delete the source
tree's when your done with them, etc.. only source tree you should keep
around would be /usr/src/linux, everything else you can just rm -rf.

GCC needs about ~350-400MB (gcc-x.xx.x.x // gcc-build) for a full build,
but from the sounds of it, you are keeping around the old source trees,
delete the ones your done with // don't need at the moment, will save
you quite a bit more room.

btw, when all is said and done, and your build is finished and you start
strip'ing your bins/libs (just be carefull) you can bring the system
down to less then 200MB, easy.
