The actual reason for your sound problem is probably the file
/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-local.conf that hinders the aoa drivers from
getting loaded. You can just rename it to end something else than
.conf, and it stops working:

$ su
# mv /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-local.conf

Now, just reboot, and it should be ok.

The file was created by the installer that made the wrong decision
about which sound driver is needed on this machine.

Having snd-powermac listed in /etc/modules is unnecessary but
harmless. The driver itself knows that it cannot work on the machine
in question.
