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
Then do an:
apt-get install puredata
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,

Post copious output to as may lists as you can!
