I think it would be a notable improvement in the documentation to warn
the user that 2GB must be available.  The actual notice to the user is
at the top of this page:
Approximate build time:  12.3 SBU
Required disk space:     784 MB.

Filesystem for SuSE 9.0 is reiserfs; kernel = 2.4.21-144-default

Actual space available reported AFTER this test is about 1.5GB.  I will
free up some space and try again.
