i need a little less for my

the download dir is little above 500m (since 3.6.0, no automatic delete 
available, impossible to remove manually due to the numeric prefixes - i 
guess i'll try to make a script one day...)

the unpacked translations are about 1.3
(older versions had plenty of stuff in 2 more directories, 3.6.3 doesnt 
download or extract them any more)

the working directory expands up to 3.7g

install-size is just 350m  (stripped!, only EN, DE, FR languages)

max disk usage during build is about 5.8g (64bit, 5.5g with 32bit)

i have an intel i7 with 16g ram and 320 wd raptor disk.

last 32bit build used 3.4g build, 350m destdir and run for 50:48
last 64bit build used 3.7g build, 380m destdir and run for 52:35
