Default Resizing /usr

Hey all

My current situation is as follows:

windows 20GB
free 20GB
-- / 500MB
-- /tmp 300MB
-- /usr 6GB
-- /var 500MB
Ubuntu 30GB

As the title suggests, I want to resize my /usr partition to occupy the free 20GB.

Please note:

1) I have no other drive to backup FreeBSD to
2) I am not connected to any other machine to which I can send the data
3) This is my laptop, and I'm willing to experiment anything that may lead to loss of data, as long as it might work
4) I am NOT willing to reinstall, I have just built too much from source and it has taken a long time..
5) I'm kinda new to FreeBSD...

I've searched around for a while, but found nothing interested..

Any help?
