preupgrade 12-13 and not enough disk space for /var/cache

My / partition, that contains /var, has only 800 MB available and
I will certainly need more.
I have plenty of space in another partition and would like to use
that one for downloading rpm's tu upgrade from fedora 12 to 13.

As preupgrade.cli accept -c yum-xxx.conf, I tried that option including 
but it didn't work as I got "not enough space..."
(Pleaso note that the size of my /boot is already 500 MB).

Question :
What is the recommended solution to use a filesystem outside
of /var for preupgrade and then upgrade?

I goggled a lot and only found this closed bug report
