I'm in the process of compiling it now. The configure script ran without 
errors, so I assume it has all the necessary components.

You can delete everything, except the kernel includes directory 
(/usr/src/linux/include, I think it is.) Somewhere in the LFS book, there's 
an instruction to make a couple of links to stuff in that directory - the 
'asm' and 'linux' subdirectories. With care, you might be able to narrow it 
down further, if you don't need headers for ia-64, sparc, ppc, etc.
