I can't comment on the SMP features...

I'm running FreeBSD head on a G4 MacMini without any problems
(however, I'm not running a GUI on it). The only exception is that
I can't load kernel modules via /boot/loader.conf.

I'm also running FreeBSD head on a dual CPU G5, but it runs only
stably when disabling smp. So you might want to try disabling smp
also on your G4 system in case you experience problems.

Best regards
