Try this:

cp -a /var/cache/apt /usr/local/apt
ln -s /usr/local/apt /var/cache/apt

Thanks for the suggestion. However, what I ended up doing was to just make /var 512MB:

raub@katrina:~$ df
Filesystem           1k-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda2               379271     28451    331239   8% /
/dev/sda1                48586      1342     44735   3% /boot
/dev/sda4              2554532    922820   1501948  39% /usr
/dev/sda5               507440    313768    167473  66% /var
/dev/sda6               675532        36    641180   1% /home

This way it should not annoy me for quite a while =)

So, after that I was finally able to use tasksel and install quite a few packages. I guess the next step is to actually start using the machine (my second linux box ever; my first one was a Mac SE/30 I installed linux on just to say I could; the next day it was bagged and boxed and forgotten. This IPX, however, will be seeing some action).
