Check the size of the /var/lib/smart/packages folder. Unless you have a
particular reason for keeping the files in here (i.e. sharing to other
machines) Then once they are installed, you can delete them. The easiest way
is with:
# smart clean

You may have set
# smart config --set remove-packages=false
at some point, which will stop smart deleting the files, so they'll just stack
up in there. If you don't need them just do:
# smart config --set remove-packages=true
