Roughly 8GB (for git svn, mere svn +2GB or so), plus 5GB ccache if
affordable, speeds up things a lot when rebuilding something.

Build _on_ a thumb drive? How many days are you willing to wait? And are
you willing to sacrifice the life time of it, as a build is heavily i/o
bound? Or did you mean just the system on the thumb drive and build on
a hard disk? Given enough RAM so that the needed executables and header
files are cached that might be possible, never tried that.
