Keep in mind that some ports (those that contain kernel modules) require the kernel sources. On my 7.2-RELEASE-p4 machine, /usr/src uses 495 MiB according to du(1). A bzip2 compressed tar archive of /usr/src weighs in at 83 MiB. If you are suffering from space constraints, consider doing a trimmed-down buildworld (on an external disk or on another machine) as well. Using src.conf(5) you can exclude a lot of stuff from the base system if you don't need it.
