Of the 1.6GB, nearly 400mb are the .disasm files, so it splits up as:
700mb baseline
400mb disasm
500mb debug symbols in object files

It would be trivial to comment out the disasm commands, so those files
aren't created by default. (the new lines in src/config/Config.lb)
It might also be reasonably simple to enable them with some option.

As for the debug symbols, I don't know enough about the build system to
say how complex it is to enable/disable those options "on demand". Given
that they're necessary in each mainboard directory, that looks harder
for me.
