Hm. Strange, but doesn't sound harmful.

You need to build your kernel with the SunGEM driver (not bmac or gmac).

Install the 'usbutils' package. Then the hotplug scripts will be able to
check for devices that are plugged in at boot, and initialize them as
needed. Normally you won't have any USB devices (except the software
modem, if your iBook has one), so this probably won't make a big
difference at the moment.

Ignore this. You don't have a Gamma board (a 3Dlabs video card) anyway.
That's just the kernel direct rendering module for that board. 'rm' that
file if it really bothers you, but it won't hurt anything.

You probably need to build and install the modules for ALSA, and make
sure that the appropriate driver (snd-powermac, I think?) is loaded.
Read /usr/share/doc/alsa-source/README.Debian.gz for more info.
