The disklabel is probably offset by a different amount on the macppc
than the i386. I had this issue when mounting disks on the alpha.
The way that I solved it was that disklabel -r will scan for the
label, so you can do something along the lines of
disklabel -r sd0 | disklabel -R sd0 /dev/stdin
to grab the offset disklabel and install it as the incore label.
