For LFS alone, no. A few years ago we checked it and determined the
minimum size would be 1.3G, but that has probably grown. I've not
tested it, but I suspect that you can get by with 2G fairly easily, but
that doesn't account for any BLFS packages.
The big package is glibc in chapter 6.

I have a similar system and the usage is 4.2G. It would be slightly
smaller on a 32-bit system.
