OK. But it will not work as it, I think.

In install-cd.sh there is

  sys=`(cd ${TMP-/tmp}; sh ${OVERRIDE_GUESS-$CDDIR}/config.guess)`
  system=`echo $sys | sed 's/-[^-]*-/-/'`
  case $system in
    powerpc_darwin5*)   usrprefix=/usr ;varprefix=/var
    *86-linux*)        usrprefix=/usr ;varprefix=/var ;Sys=i386_linux;;

So the script expects powerpc_darwin to be echoed by config.guess.

And in gnu/config.guess there is

    echo `uname -p`-apple-darwin${UNAME_RELEASE}
    exit 0 ;;

so powerpc-apple-darwin5.4 will be echoed...

(BTW the binary directory name is powerpc-darwin5.3 also)
