out of inodes... new install

/usr: create/symlink failed, no inodes free
. /configure.lineno: cannot create conftest.err: file system full

this install is on a 5 gb slice partitioned with dfly installer
I had a similar problem the other day on a 14gb partition (didn't
notice the inodes part, may have been there...) -- both cases, 
there is plenty of disk space left.

Was talking with an openbsd developer who was having "out of disk space
issues" too.

I know what this error means but have no idea why it would happen under
the circumstances (cvsup, make bash, make xorg), or what I should do
about it... :-\
