The 2-3 Gigs take into account space required for the source trees of
programs while building so you could stick with that.
That said, if you want to build a lot more things out of BLFS I would up
the size. 10G would be pretty comfortable for a full blown desktop with
KDE/Gnome and bunches of ancillary programs. You can certainly get away
with less than that though.
Have fun in your journey!
