Let's hope that Apple had access to a pre-release of 5.0 and has built 10.3 on top of it.
Though it's interesting that FreeBSD has not been officially ported to a PowerPC processor yet. See link.

I think it would be in their best interests to work with stable code instead of scraping together an OS at the last minute from a collection of unproven code.
I don't know if they could realistically have enough time if they were using the BSD 5.0 code, and I don't know if it's really that much better than 4.7 to be worth the risks.
(risks being buggy code and/or running out of time)
