For x86 Ubuntu, you can simply add unstable Debian apt-get repositories 
and get PD and family as deb packages. You might try the same thing with 
the PPC version, and hopefully the PPC developers have PD in there and 
up to date.

The line I added to a friend's x86 Ubuntu /etc/apt/sources.list was:

deb http://snapshot.debian.net/archive/2004/12/06/debian/ testing main 
contrib non-free

Then do an:
apt-get update
apt-get install puredata

and use:
apt-cache search [packagename]
for the other stuff.

This should get you PD, GEM and several other externals [if you find 
them by package name, of course], but not PDP or PiDiP. I don't know of 
any PPC debs for those.

Ubuntu should have synaptic installed, if you prefer a GUI for package

I'm afraid you won't get much help if you don't post the errors.
On Linux, you can select the output in the terminal and use the middle 
mouse button to paste it someplace else [like in an email to the PD 
list]. This probably won't work with the Mac mono-button trackpad, 
however ;-)

Post copious output to as may lists as you can!
