Boot to single-user mode, or shut down as much stuff as you can.
Move, copy, whatever. Set up symlinks or bind mounts or whatever you
want so that /var actually appears at /var.
Reboot or restart stuff. Reboot if there was stuff you couldn't shut
down (logging daemons and stuff, perhaps), as the file handles those
programs have open will become invalid.
