*Sigh* I know how you feel.  Just building kdelibs takes 1.5GB and several
hours to compile on my machine.  Currently I have about 140MB of free disk
space left and thats after juggling partitions, NFS mounting /home etc.
So my attempts to follow KDE development have ground to a halt.

One thing you might want to look into is SourceForge has a "compile farm"
perhaps they can arrange for you to be able to set up your chroot on a
fast alpha or something?

Of course if some kind soul out there has a good machine you could use
that's even better (and if they don't mind giving me an account, I might
be able to help.)
