I don't know this hint but tried a compile to a very limited partition.
So I twice (gcc + glibc) ran into the "No space left" and I did the
following which you might try (as long as you do the static programs
you can delete all kind of docs, they will be installed in the dynamic
building again): 1. remove all docs like man pages, info pages.
Then I did for gcc instead of  
> make BOOT_LDFLAGS=-static bootstrap &&
  make BOOT_LDFLAGS=-static bootstrap-lean &&
This deletes files which are no longer used during make instead of
keeping them (never had any problems here with that). And 3.) check
you really deleted all sources which you do not need at the moment
(I only had that source untarred which I was actually going to compile,
all other stuff was on an extern source partition).

Hope this helps.
