I've got an 80GB drive partitioned as follows:

salamander# df -h
Filesystem     Size    Used   Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/ad0s1a    496M     35M    421M     8%    /
devfs          1.0K    1.0K      0B   100%    /dev
/dev/ad0s1g     64G    262M     58G     0%    /home
/dev/ad0s1d    496M     54K    456M     0%    /tmp
/dev/ad0s1e    3.9G    3.0G    559M    85%    /usr
/dev/ad0s1f    4.8G    114M    4.3G     2%    /var

Is it possible to get more space for /usr by either allocating space
from /home or by providing a symlink to a partition on home?
