One option is to use kvm and virtual image to do the build and run smoke test 
across different distros. If you use a slightly older distro instead of the 
latest one to do your build, it will run on many more machines out there.

4GB should be sufficient to hold most distros with build tools. You can always 
knock off the big hog - openoffice - to trim it down further.
