Yes. In fact, if you have tuned your kernel to your liking, you
can just as well do:
# rm -r /usr/src/sys
And if you don't plan to rebuild the system anytime soon, you
could remove even more:
# rm -r /usr/src/*
Other candidates for removal on my /usr partition are:
/usr/games - this server don't need no stinking games!
/usr/sup - I keep my cvsup stuff elsewhere
And, you can remove old cruft from /usr/obj, like:
# chflags -R noschg /usr/obj
# rm -rf /usr/obj/*
