Darwin is a hack of several other operating systems..  Mac OS X code 
was mostly based on NetBsd in the first release.  Apple has been 
switching over to more FreeBSD code in each release.  Last time I 
looked into darwin, there was a page on apple's website discussing the 
topic.  I think there is a kb article discussing it in terns of Mac OS 
X as well.

As others have pointed out, the kernel is different. (Mach 3 kernel)

If you have a need for a BSD running on PPC.. check out NetBSD.
