Did you execute this in /usr/ports? Its better to select only the port
you like to have.

Just as a tip 'df -h' give human readable output.

A port first fetches the sources it need and places these in
/usr/ports/distfiles/. You could empty this with:
rm -rf /usr/ports/distfiles/*

You could also move /usr/src/ and /usr/obj to another machine and mount
them from there. As a added bonus, you then can let the other machine do
most of the building during updates of the main system.

You could also move /usr/ports/ to this machine. You do need to edit the
working directory in /etc/make.conf (copy it from /etc/defaults/ if it
doesn't exist) becuase you don't want to mount the working directory.

It depends on what you like to do. My kde workstaion has a 2 GB disk and
du -h gives: 
/dev/ad0s1g            2.0G   1.5G   340M    82%    /usr

This doesn't inculde /usr/ports/, /usr/src/ and /usr/obj/, since I let
antoher machine handle this. The later two are for upgrading your

du -sh /usr/* gives:
287M    X11R6
 11M    bin
 85M    compat
2.0K    export1
1.5M    games
145M    home (one user)
8.8M    include
 28M    lib
 11M    libdata
 16M    libexec
879M    local
428M    ports (exist on another computer; the minium is 250M)
334M    src (exist on another computer)
435M    obj (exist on another computer)
6.6M    sbin
 36M    share

For a workstation with X and sources you need 3G, without souces you
need 2G.
