I've got this error message when I try to upgrade my NetBSD.

./ -O ../obj -T ../tools -U install=/

/destdir.i386  -M /usr/src/../obj/destdir.i386/METALOG -N /usr/src/etc
-i / 
Copying set base

/var: create/symlink failed, no inodes free

/var: create/symlink failed, no inodes free
pax: Cannot create /./var/tmp/vi.recover (No space left on device)

My df -hi

Well, I need more inodes in /var, is mandatory to format the partiton?

Someone can say me a good value of inodes via newfs -n ?
The partion has 512MB with FFS.

Thanks in advance
