My understanding is clamscan is a process that's manually launched and clamd is the daemon that things like a mail server can talk to.

 Was clamscan checking your hard drive for viruses? If so, not surprised it's taking hours on a PPC. I remember the disk I/O always be sluggish.

You'll need to build a compiler (hours if not days!) that's new enough to not have this issue. It would be worthwhile to see if you can find one already built somewhere but I suspect finding PPC programs is difficult these days.
