ports, so perhaps a ports-specific adjustment like below is appropriate and
an easy solution for any admin with sufficient inodes available on a
partition of their choosing? I am concerned about the drawbacks
(performance) of increasing the ratio of inodes on /usr just to accommodate
an optional and somewhat flexible component.

in a location I can easily clean out:

Personally I use /usr/obj and occasionally nuke it (I know we're running
out of inode on /usr, but rm should solve that problem).
