Moving Ports directory

I'm using FreeBSD Current on an older machine.  I have two hard disks
attached, one 3gb and one 2gb.  I have put the root on the 3gb drive but it
is now about 80% full.  I would like to move the Ports directory to the 2gb
drive so I can run a new kernel build.

What are the steps to move the /usr/ports directory to the other drive?
