Concrete jungle, oh freebsd-questions, you've got to do your best...

cr> # lsof /

why not to restart your httpd and mysqld?
This may release your unused filehandles.
Another place to look for wasted space is filesystem snapshots, if any. They
can be created implicitly, e. g., by fsck.
And... why lsof and not fstat(1)?
