i ran into similar problems when i got gcc1.35 or so.  when i tried to
do something, i forget whether it was 
untar or uncompress i exceeded disk allotment. i moved the
whole operation to /tmp where such restrictions seem not to apply,
split the result, downloaded to the 3b1 and never had any system
complaints. this was suggested by the sysadmin. your mileage may vary.
