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.
