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.
