Everything is done the "normal" way that is driven by /etc/rc.conf.

The resizing of root is done by the call of /etc/rc.d/resize_root from

So once the image has been written to the uSD, you can simply mount
the 'a' partition and adjust as you see fit.

For the organization of the uSD card, YMMV. I personnally try to put the
minimum on it and to limit the writes in order to not wear it out too

If you are building packages, putting the workdir on tmpfs is a good
idea---as long as you don't try to build a package that will need
gigabytes of space. And in this case invoking:

make DEPENDS_TARGET="install clean" [install|package]

will remove the obj dir as soon as the dependency is installed leaving
