-if you ever did a buildworld then you have the compiled base system
in  /usr/obj, which you can delete.
-you can scan your filesystem for *.core files (a process creates these
when it crashes) and delete them.
-make sure you always do a 'make clean' after installing software from
the ports. i think portupgrade can scan and cleanup all ports workdirs.

but i think in most cases much more spaces is wasted with stuff in your
homedir you forgot about ;)
well at least this is the case for me ... having a deeper look into my
$HOME/tmp and $HOME/stuff can quickly free some hundred MBs :)
