Here's how you install (most) of the Developer tools (including 200 MB of 'Documentation')

The GUI way (for the faint of heart):
Log in as the user you used in the installer. (I don't know if this will actually work). Go to Computer. Go into your OS X HD. Take Developer. Drag to trash. Empty trash.

The Terminal way:
type the following into a terminal window:
sudo rm -r /Developer
It will ask you for a password. Type in your password. DON'T PANIC if you can't see it as you type - that's supposed to happen. That's the closest the Terminal can come to giving you bullets.

Now it does throw some other stuff into /usr/local/bin and probably /usr/bin, but I don't know exactly what it installs. In any case, this stuff will never bother you, unless you really really really need a few extra megs of disk space.
