On FreeBSD /var/cache/pkg can use up a significant amount of space. The good news is the content of this directory is not required. However it is useful if you want to rollback to an older version of a package.

The cleanup can be done with: pkg clean

run pkg clean -n dry run first

Fore more check the manual and see the handbook.
