building an LFS image

Finally finished building LFS, and its booting fine. Now I want to make an 
image file of the LFS system. The system was built on a vmware machine with 
a virtual drive 4GB in size (3.7GB of which are for the root filesystem, and 
300MB for swap space), and df reports that I am using 437MB of space (isnt 
that a bit high considering that /tools was deleted along with the sources 
directory). Anyway, if I use dd to make an image of the build into a file on 
a second virtual hard disk, I get a 3.7GB image file.

How can I build an image file that has the same size of the LFS build files?
