[ale] How to change the size of Var folder?

There are couple of big log files and i have emptied them all.
Can you show me how to link /var to /new_var.
I don't worry too much about fill up /usr as its size about 1249000 k
and /var has only 220000 k available

It would be nice if I can control which thing should be logged, as most of
the thing in log files as mailer-daemon mail which i don't think that it
needs to log
