This sounds like a second in a month problem with /usr/home not linked
to /home on 13.0-RC and an upcoming surprise on 13.0-RELEASE :-)

I have filled a bug for this:

Yes, its ridiculous how something so small as 100 MB or even 30MB  can be such an issue, but in a marginal internet area like where I am, it is! So, by placing the "big ones" at the beginning (say, xorg), it matters little to folks with bandwidth, but to us in the boonies, woukd be a big help.

I would suggest to fill a bug / feature request (see example above) as
well here. FreeBSD Bugzilla is the best place to talk with developers
/ maintainters when it comes to a particular problem :-)
