Putting /tmp on a separate volume?

I followed the automatic suggestions for slices at install time and now have
a /tmp folder of 500M. This fills up at odd times and I was hoping to install
a second drive and mount a section of it as /tmp.
So far I managed to get a second drive partitioned. I replaced the slice
in /etc/fstab for /tmp with one of the new partitions (in this case, ad1s1c).
KDE would not start because it did not have the permissions for /tmp any more,
so I put the following entries in /etc/devfs.conf:
own /dev/ad1s1c root:wheel
perm /dev/ad1s1c 0777
own /tmp root:wheel
perm /tmp 0777
That didn't work. I initially tried with 0666 but that failed as well. The
0777 did not seem like a good long-term solution anyway.
So... Is what I am doing possible? And what is the intelligent way to go about
