I did an installation last weekend (following the latest CVS version, 
except using the "keep-ch-5-and-6-separate"-hint and gcc 3.04). It 
initially consumed 2.1GB, after removing the source directories and source 
packages and stripping the debug symbols, the size was about 130MB.

In general you would only need "cp -a". If your system is already bootable 
/ read to use you should take a look at /etc/fstab, /etc/lilo.conf etc.
