If you have enough free space left on your harddrive, you could make a
new slice, copy /var there, unmount the old /var,
and remount the new /var.
Another option is to copy everything in /var to another directory on
another slice that has enough space, unmount /var and make it a symlink
to the new location.
All these tricks are best done in single user mode.
