There are multiple ways.

The most classic way would be to make a bunch of symlinks from various
directorys in /usr to space in /mnt.

A better way would be to back up /usr, then reformat the /usr and /mnt
partitions as vinum partitions, and create a concatenated volume of the
resulting space, then restore /usr to that.  This takes a little know-how,
so you'd be well advised to try it out on a test system to get acquianted
with vinum first.

... although, I'm not sure what the status of Vinum is in 5.x ... last I
asked, it wasn't reliable on 5.x yet, but that's been a while.

I'm sure others will present other options as well.
