Cheap USB drives, and even many CF drives, aren't much good as random
read-write devices. On my Soekris boxen I run FreeBSD, and mount the
root filesystem rw,noatime. And I don't write to it. ;-) /var is a
memory filesystem, there /var/db/... contain symbolic links to
/usr/local/db/.. because the package database can grow quite large.
/tmp is a symlink to /var/tmp.
Configured this way, these machines are trouble-free.
