In addition to the previous advice you've received regarding symbol files, you may also want to only compile and install the kernel modules you actually use.
There's also the side benefit of the kernel being that much faster to rebuild.
Get the list with "kldstat".
Here for example, we only build a very few of them:
Id Refs Address Size Name
1 19 0xffffffff80100000 b0eec0 kernel
2 1 0xffffffff80c0f000 bca8 geom_label.ko
3 1 0xffffffff80c1b000 1350 mfi_linux.ko
4 4 0xffffffff80c1d000 47958 linux.ko
5 1 0xffffffff80e12000 40c3 linprocfs.ko
6 1 0xffffffff80e17000 a14 linsysfs.ko
This yields a very lightweight kernel folder, even when retaining the debug symbols:
$ du -hs
This is what you want in /etc/rc.conf :
MODULES_OVERRIDE=geom/geom_label if_lagg if_vlan linprocfs linsysfs linux mfi/mfi_linux
