The biggest difference to watch for is the name of your dynamic linker. 
On x86, it's ld-linux.so.2. On a powerpc, it will be ld.so.1. As Jon 
said, also you'll use a different bootloader. If you have a new world 
Mac (any of the recent non-beige ones, ie, a G4) then yaboot should work 
well. Also, in addition to the packages built in LFS, you'll probably 
want/need mac-fdisk or parted for editing partitions.
