Thanks Ben

It took a bit of detective work but when I found the page:
your instructions on building the tree are pretty clear ;)  

As a result I ran out of space in /usr (down to 19Mb out 
of 1.5Gb) but I've since run deborphan and released 167Mb in total.

So on to actually recompiling the kernel, I shall plough through the
documentation to find out how but if I get stuck, I  hope you won't mind me
coming back for help :)
