As far as I can tell, altq is only supported on a few architectures,
and macppc isn't one of them:

yerfable ~> grep altq /usr/src/sys/arch/*/conf/majors.*
/usr/src/sys/arch/algor/conf/majors.algor:device-major	altq		char 64			altq
/usr/src/sys/arch/alpha/conf/majors.alpha:device-major	altq		char 64			altq
/usr/src/sys/arch/amd64/conf/majors.amd64:device-major	altq		char 77			altq
/usr/src/sys/arch/arm/conf/majors.arm32:device-major	altq		char 90			altq
/usr/src/sys/arch/evbmips/conf/majors.evbmips:device-major	altq		char 64			altq
/usr/src/sys/arch/hp700/conf/majors.hp700:device-major	altq		char 33			altq
/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/conf/majors.i386:device-major	altq		char 77			altq

I don't know whether it's just a simple oversight that it's not
supported, or if there's a lot of coding needed to make it work. You might try adding:

device-major	altq	char 77	altq

to your src/sys/arch/macppc/conf/majors.macppc, re-config, and
recompile your kernel, and see if that does anything useful.
