[buug] linux is out of control

With the release of linux 2.4.19 last weekend, the unpacked source
tree is about 160M large.
Does anyone else see this as a problem (before you reply "disk space
is cheap" please think about my sig just this once), and if so, what
solutions or measures can you suggest to deal with it?
As an example of the kind of answer I'm hoping for, long ago I
actually used to trim the tree by deleting the parts I had no use
for. I don't remember what changes I had to make in the build process
to have "make config" etc. behave correctly, though.
Thanks for your thoughts,
