Is this released? I build most of my kernels for both x86 and PowerPC,
plus I build several configurations for diskless clients from the same
source tree.

About 30MB for a cross-compilation environment capable of building
kernels. Then add whatever libraries you need if you want to build
userspace, and another 5 or so MB for C++. It's less than a built kernel
tree.
