I'm installing Gentoo on a mac G5 and would like to utilize ext4 for my root partition. I'll be setting up a separate ext2 for boot. So far I am not aware of any livecd for ppc64 that supports/has the tools for ext4 creation. Are there any methods out there for solving this scenario?

You could try the Ubuntu 9.04 installer. I know x86/amd64 features ext4 support, I'm assuming PPC has it as well.
