I haven't had them either for years, but I decided to give it a ago
when I did a junkbox-install on a Sparcstation 4. Now I remember why
I stopped doing it:

/dev/sd0a       32215    26554      4050    86%    /
/dev/sd0g      707335   516254    155714    76%    /usr

Now I get to play with different TMPDIR-settings, linkfarms and other
fun stuff. These are the default settings (on 1GB disk) and with approx.
30 packages.
