Is nobody freecycling one? http://www.freecycle.org/group/US/

I may be wrong about this, but I believe it's more of a software issue than a hardware one. The last version of Xcode produced for 10.3 is known to produce some wonky, apparently random errors in some applications when they are run on 10.4 and 10.5. I imagine that 10.4 and above are much more prevalent on current live machines (although I'd love to see some hard data either way on that one), so given one dedicated PPC build machine I imagine the emphasis should be placed on producing stable applications for 10.4 and 10.5 (10.6 being Intel-only). Xcode for 10.5 is known to produce applications that play fairly nice with 10.4, but again, things sometimes get wonky with 10.3 (and then again, sometimes not).

That's not to say, of course, that if you happened to find and old mac and some 10.3 disks laying around, that a donation wouldn't be appreciated =)
