Could anyone help with 2 questions:

~ What might have caused my machine to run out of swap? It was running X and
twm with 1 xterm open. For hardware it has 256MB RAM and a 470MB swap
partition. I've not had this problem before.
Ouch.. you should actually have more swap than that (2*(Physical RAM amount) =
512MB swap would be a better idea in the future).
As for running out of swap, what are your make options for ruby? Having the
ruby doc (or whatever it was) option selected ate up a lot of memory on
machines a few months back; having this option deselected and rebuilding ruby
fixes the memory bloat.
make config in the lang/ruby* ports directory will yield the desired result
