Well, I think there's enough place for everything on root partition. 
Maybe there's anything else using out some space?

  1. Have you upgraded your OS? Have you done "make delete-old(-libs)"?
  2. What is your mounted partitions? Are /usr, /home, /var and /tmp 
based on other partitions?
  3. What catalogs are your spacehogs? Examine the output of:

find / -type d -maxdepth 1 -mindepth 1 -exec du -hd0 {} \;

Sphinx of black quartz judge my vow.
