Ok, so obviously you aren't quite listening to what we are saying. 
First of all, 256mb is *not* plenty of swap with so little physical 
RAM...even to build uclibc.  Typically, we've found that you can't even 
build glibc and/or gcc on gentoo/mips with 64mb of RAM, no matter how 
much swap you give the box.  Also, wl500g does *not* have 32mb of RAM, 
but rather 16mb.  I know, because I have one.  Furthermore, isn't isn't 
necessarily the running of glibc, but more the building of glibc that is 
your issue.  The only thing you'll be learning in this process is the 
fact that you wished you would have listened to us in the first place.
