Is Gname really that big? or did I miss doing something?

Well it is big, but since you are installing from a clean system all the gnome dependencies will also have to install their dependencies and so on. So basically you have to install a *lot* of ports which may take quite some space/time if you do not clean up nicely. Use 'make install clean' or 'make install distclean' to install your ports (if you didn't allready) that will order the make process to remove the files it uses during it's build (and distclean also cleans the downloaded distfiles in the distfiles dir )
 Doing a du -h -d1 on /usr shows"

7.0G ports.
1.8G local

Check inside ports what is taking up the most space, most likely your distfiles dir is huge as well as the build directories inside a lot of ports itself. You can manually remove the distfiles for ports you allready installed from /usr/ports/distfiles. If that does not help enough also remove some of the work directories for the ports you installed allready but are not cleaned by make yet and resume your build. (so if for example you see gnome-session is allready installed ( pkg_info -Ex gnome ) remove /usr/ports/x11/gnome-session/work/ )
