I've a pentium 3 CPU that cannot build/install (usually) ruby19 and/or python27 due to either a long build time or a process running out of memory.  Does anyone know the CPU/Memory below which pkgng  may cease to create packages easily for some of the larger ports, it such should prove to be the case?  In which case, it should maybe be made into a FAQ before pkgng becomes the default for the current STABLE version/release...
