8.1. Diskspace requirements
For the installation you'll have to choose a directory for
installation. I'll refer to that directory below with <prefix>. To
avoid a certain problem it's best to use the same value for <prefix>
as your native gcc. For example if your gcc is installed in
/usr/bin/gcc then choose /usr for <prefix>. You must use the same
<prefix> value for all the packages that you're going to install.
During compilation you'll need about 31mb diskspace for binutils; for
installation you'll need 7mb diskspace for on <prefix>'s partition.
Building egcs requires 71mb and installation 14mb. GNU libc requires
149mb diskspace during compilation and 33mb for installation. Note
these numbers are just a guideline and may differ significantly for
different processor and operating system architectures.
