Default /usr became full while updating via cvs


Hope you all had a great holiday break.

I was getting an update of -current using cvs. I used one server for the src tree, which rejected me when I tried to update the ports tree.

I then closed the terminal thread, opened another window, and checked out a tree from scratch, and updated src and ports.

Rant into some problems when I tried to update xenocara:

/usr: write failed, file system is full
cvs [checkout aborted]: writing xenocara/app/rgb/config.guess: No space left on device
...looked around to see how much space I had..
# df -hi

I used disklabel -A for my wd0 drive. I've another HDD (100GB); but I've never gotten around to adding it.
Q1: Are there any "caches" to clear out so I can continue?

I'm not a partition expert, so I'd like some r-e-m-e-d-i-a-l level help on the following:
Q2a: If I need to reconfigure (to expand /usr), what's the best way to do it w/o having to recalc - will the new disklabel (will RTFM) allow a "hard" allocation for a drive section during an "auto" reconfiguration?
Q2b: If I were to add the 2nd HDD, may I have a few examples of what a "good" partition allocation of a 40/100GB looks like? (e.g., can I "split" /home btwn the 2 drives, or "move" it to occupy the second HDD? etc.)

Thank you, all.
