You could clear out the files in /usr/ports/distfiles, because you can always download those again. If you have ever built a new kernel & world, you can clean out /usr/obj after installing them. If you have ports that you don't use, pkg_delete those as well, since they're in /usr/local. For instance, if you've upgraded to xorg 7.2, you can delete most of the drivers ports. While you're at it, you can set the nodump flag on both of these directories, so that they're no backed up.
