It should be possible, but it won't necessarily be easy. If you don't  
know how to compile software and possibly tweak code as necessary, I  
do not recommend you try it.

I have tried getting Evergreen to work on a FreeBSD system (very  
similar to Mac OS X under the hood) and gave up after a couple of days  
of tweaking and almost getting it to work and having something else  
fail once I got something to work. It is much easier to get it going  
if you stick to GNU/Linux, particularly Debian, Ubuntu or Fedora.

A G4 is kind of slow, but for playing around with the server it may be  
adequate. I would not try to do any serious work running everything on  
a single G4.

You would need to install rel_1_6 or trunk from SVN to play with acquisitions.
