Server looks ok to me, apart from the memory which seems to be too little for compiling (512MB? eek...). How is that extra 512MB of RAM allocated dynamically to the machine?
As for Plesk itself, I've administered a box running Plesk 2 years ago and it was a total nightmare. It ONLY worked with MySQL 3.x back then, the previous administrator had forcibly updated it to MySQL 4 and that broke half of Plesk's features (e.g. it couldn't be updated). I had to use a custom MySQL build to have everything working again... in any case, it seems they've fixed that nowadays. However, their support back then was terrible, had to search through forums to get a reply to my problem. I sincerely hope they've improved in that aspect as well after 2 years...
