I've setup in a virtual machine with 8 GByte virtual disk and 512 MByte
virtual RAM such a customised mini installation (only kernel, bin's and Xorg),
and filled in as well KDR 3.5.8, firefox-devel, stardict;

the resulting space is:

$ df -kh . ; du -sh PKGDIR/
Filesystem     Size    Used   Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/ad0s1a    7.7G    4.2G    2.9G    59%    /
1,6G    PKGDIR/

i.e. 4.5 GByte are left over (in ~/PKGDIR I have for the moment all
packages for installation, which can be removed later of course);
the 512 MByte (virtual RAM) with no swap device is fine as well; top

Mem: 73M Active, 262M Inact, 72M Wired, 1192K Cache, 60M Buf, 82M Free

with KDE up and running; this is really a nice way to go for;
