Similar here, 7-STABLE (home desktop), system still contains
default kernel and a backup, but without debugging info.
% df -h /
Filesystem Size Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
/dev/ad0s1a 496M 336M 120M 74% /
% du -hs /boot/kernel*
However, I think increasing the default size to 1GB for /
would be a nice addition for the next release (at least
for 9.0), or default sizes could be percentages of the
available slice or disk space.
Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0
