Not really on topic but related:

I was playing around with a DragonFly installation on my 1GB USB stick a 
couple of months ago and tried to figure out how I might do a successful 
buildworld on it (kernel building worked but for a full buildworld there 
was too little space left).

So I wrote a 'make compact' target which removes the object files as 
soon as the binary is created in order to save space. It still didn't 
work and I started thinking about a 'realcompact' target which removes 
object files plus _source files_ as soon as they are no longer needed. 
So in the end you would have only the binaries in obj and the Makefiles 
in src.

But (luckily?) I got distracted by something else before I actually 
tried implementing it. :)
