Regarding Macs, are the PowerPC ones still relevant ?

From the perspective of Apple - they don't see PPC as relevant anymore. The fact that Snow Leopard dropped all support for PPC architectures is a testament to that.

If you ask IBM, their Power series of servers are still alive and well.

Would replicating the SSE code and transcribing it to Altivec useful or just a waste of time ? (assuming it's relatively straightforward, if not I suppose the answer is the latter :-).
I don't know if it would be straightforward or not, but if it were a heavy undertaking I would not say it has enough relevance to be bothered with at this time.

Just an opinion.
