How much space do you have in your USB flash drive? (free space?) If you have enough, you can try extracting kernelsource to the drive instead of your ram (using tar zxvf).
You may not need gnu-utils extensions, so don't load it.
As for gcc1, if that's the one that you're always running out of space on, you can extract it (like in the first paragraph of this post) and delete some stuff you wont need... (ie X related things), then either remake the extension, or you could just manually copy over the things you need (ie gcc binaries, basic header files, sound related things).
Or you could ask someone nice enough to compile it for you, or look up their knoppix cd/dvds for you.
Side note: you could also just create a temporary swap on your USB just to do this - but it is not recommended to keep one on your flash drive!
