You have allocated too little space on /usr (where /home also resides).

Probibly because of too little diskspace. Too little information to say for 
sure. Or you are running a outdated ports repository (install and use 
cvsup. refer to man page of cvsup).

Ask a FreeBSD mailinglist.

I would guess diskspace is your problem. Ask a FreeBSD mailinglist.
