Doing Dist-Upgrade or Such

Now that the g++ business is largely behind us, want to start upgrading. 
Problem is that with that darned partitioning by the Debian installation, 
there is not enough room on /var to accomplish upgrade of such size.

What can be done about this?

Note that to get an /opt, I bind this to a directory on my over-sized home.
Same for /usr/local!
These need not be mounted at boot or before home gets mounted so all this 
kludge is well-behaved and transparent.

Trick like this for all of /var, obviously will not play.
Any other ideas??

(Actually, apt's part of this is quite small in comparison.)
