On bare metal, sure. In a VM backed by memory, builds consuming a lot of
disk space in guests, will consume a lot host memory.
However, checking a random kernel build log, I see that the kernel
doesn't need that much disk space either, <1GB, so that wasn't a good
A better example would have been src:firefox-esr, which needed 23GB.
