As far as I can tell, firewire support is not working on those builds. Firewire recording is critical for the S(pouse)AF in my household. Another option would be to get a working 0.24 backend on the G5. I played around with building 0.24 for a PPC  several months ago, but ran out of holiday time before I got it working.

Have you tested the firewire on the sourceforge builds? Firewire is enabled on these builds but I've not actually tested it myself.
