You don't say specifically, but I presume you're planning a source 
upgrade (make buildworld, et al).

You have oodles of space on /var, I'd suggest trying:

cd /usr
mv src /var && ln -s /var/src src
mv obj /var && ln -s /var/obj obj

That should give you plenty of room to cvsup and compile the upgrade.
