And that's done by "yum clean all".

As far as /usr is concerned, you can get an idea as to what's sucking
up what by "du -hs /usr/*".  I'd expect directories such as /usr/lib,
/usr/bin and /usr/sbin to be fairly large.  /usr/share/doc can get to
be "friggin' huge" too (that's where rpm stuffs most of the doc files).
