Check if you have the file pari/src/kernel/ppc/asm0.h.
If not, take a fresher CVS version.
If that still does not work,
./Configure --kernel=ppc-none
to force the use of the PPC kernel 

Thanks for testing!

PS: What the status of PARI shared library support on Darwin ?
I need to port the patch to the new Configure system, but before
I need to know what I can merge and what I cannot.
