A gig or 2 I recall,
(each of src/ & obj/ I recall is ~ 600M
then there's a chroot, so same again, but a few gig should be sufficient.
80G is more than enough,
You must have some partiton that overflowed, maybe /tmp or /var.
If you cant find what,
just run eg
df >> ~/df.log
& then start release again,
the log will show where its getting eaten
However I seem to recall some env var that allows piorts/ to be called in too
Now ports/distfiles alone is maybe 100 Gig or so ... so avoid ports/
Sorry to be imprecise, I havent rolled a release for months,
though I used to do it very frequently.
