Comment (by randy at linuxfromscratch.org):

 A few % is trivial (the ImageMagick note). In disk space, it isn't worth
 fixing unless it is grossly wrong. They change every time the package is
 updated as well. Depending on filesystem type, how it was formatted, etc.,
 all play into how much space is used. I use the DU figure (instead of DF)
 as it is a higher (normally) number so that is some extra cushion for the
 reader.

 Remember, it is not supposed to be exact, but more sort of indicate how
 much space you'll need to build and install.
