too little space on /

I made a very stupid mistake by assigning to little space to /
/dev/ar0s1a    247726   132686     95222    58%    /

As a result, whenever I am re-compiling a kernel and before I install 
it, I need to delete the old kernel or else there is too little space 
and new kernel cannot be installed. This is a bit dangerous as if 
something goes wrong, I have no previous kernel to fall back on.

It is too late now to change slices as this machine is in production and 
performing well.

Given that situation what options do I have (other than starting 
everything from scratch)? Could I symlink / to some other slice/dir?

Many thanks in advance!
