It is about 800Mb. But system panics while I try to extract source tree. 
It is not very recent
current. The intent of my question was to get some hints how to set up 
such build area, I
belive it should help to make compilation much faster than using hard 
drive. My home system
is not ready for panic investigation now. I'll update it to current and 
set console to it and will
try again.

PS. Sorry to all for my last posts to current that are so weak in 
"technical" details, the debug
technique I used before was without remote debugging since most of 
problems were very
near my code and it was enough for me anlo three things: my mind, 
printed sources, and printf.
So now I am in stage of adaptation to/setting up remote debugging.
