Minimal Requirements of Distribution

I have about three gigs of space on my linux box that I wish to install my 
lfs system on.  My host distribution was initially Redhat 7.2 but the 7.2 
standard install is 1.5 gigabytes!  I was wondering what the best 
distribution was to use as a host for an lfs system.  By best I mean I want 
a distribution that just contains all the programs or tools necessary to 
compile the lfs system, no more no less.  Can anyone suggest a distribution 
that is optimal for this.  Slackware, Debian, SuSe?  Any help here would be 

Thank you,
