Great, glad it worked. 1 GB RAM should be ok for compiling most ports; my PowerPC test machine has only 512 MB. But your 500 MHz processor is slow. It may be the fastest G3 Apple shipped, but it's still much slower than my 1.67 GHz G4. And when I do updates on mine, I typically set them to go at night and check on them in the morning.

Compiling compilers is one of the slowest tasks though. Most ports should build much quicker.
