apple kernel ? that would be darwin. i think you mean linux kernel ?
i dont append any kernel options. you want open firmware framebuffer
and radeonfb or nvidiafb compiled in the kernel. not sure if
enabling the edid or ddc options will help. i dont have a mac mini,
just 2 ibook g4's, not sure how different they are.
there is also #gentoo-powerpc on freenode too :)
