+1 for the LFS approach.  I've used it to build up small chroots for
various platforms where I want to bootstrap GCC using qemu user mode
emulation.  With compression the chroots are < 100M and contain enough
bits to bootstrap and regression test the compiler (ie, small enough to
be stored on github).
