This is what I did when I installed JDK 1.5 on our BSD boxes.

It sounds like, with so little physical RAM, that the JVM is only 
allocating a very small percentage of that to the JVM that starts up 
when the build gets bootstrapped. The jvmg probably needs to be manually 
set using an -Xms/-Xmx value that will give it enough room to work with.

To the JVM, swap space isn't the same as physical RAM. I have had 
problems running java applications that have to swap. With Java, 
physical RAM is crucial. If you could even put at least 512MB in that 
box just for the build, then take it out to run it, you would probably 
succeed. Barring that, you're next best bet is probably going to be 
building it on another box, then doing a pkg_add.
