The answer is yes and no. My final install, with debugging symbols left 
in, is less than 500 MB. The problem is, I think you need more space 
than that during the build to store the source tarballs and the 
extracted sources. What you might want to try is building on a host that 
has more space, and then moving the system over to your p133. If you end 
up using a different target triplet for the machine you build on, you 
should see the x86 cross-compiling hint at the hints project.
