As long as your /usr is on a separate partition, you can choose to mount
it at some other point and not format while re-installing FreeBSD. I don't
recollect the exact steps off-hand, but I remember there being a "Toggle
NewFS" or something like that option on the screen where you make
partitions. Just toggle it off and the partition won't get formatted.
Hope that helps.
