gzexe.... worth it?

Hi all.  I'm creating a root disk (as well as packages and zsh scripts 
for an auto-lfs).  As of now, I am using 619 megs.  I would like to add 
some more programs to the disk, but I don't want to go over 650 megs. 
I've read the man pages on gzexe, and it looks like it could save me 
some space, but I am wondering how much it will slow down the system. 
Also, can I do this from a boot disk, if the bin dir's aren't loaded 
into ramdisk?

Is there anything else that I could do to save some space?
