If you want tabs/spaces to be preserved, you need to use:

... stuff ...


From the FreeBSD FAQ

9.27. How is it possible for a partition to be more than 100% full?

A portion of each UFS partition (8%, by default) is reserved for use by the operating system and the root user. df(1) does not count that space when calculating the Capacity column, so it can exceed 100%. Also, you will notice that the Blocks column is always greater than the sum of the Used and Avail columns, usually by a factor of 8%.

For more details, look up the -m option in tunefs(8).
You may want to remove some stuff on your / partition, to see where all teh space is going you can use something like:
# du -hxd1 /
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
