You might want to check out the BioTeam web-site. They have a freely
available OS X Bioinformatics Application installer. You might also ask them
about optimizing apps for OSX and benchmark comparisons to Linux.

I have run all of those apps on a G5 except for rasmol. The HMMer code
in particular runs very quickly due to the altivec optimization. A
dual G5 runs HMMer faster than a quad SGI Tezro, and costs 90% less!
