Wiithon deb packeges are only available for i386 and amd64, PowerPC is not supported.
You could try to download sources from bazaar and compile them on your machine.
Try old stable release (1.0) because from wiithon 1.1, python-gtk (>=2.16) is required and ubuntu 7.10 should use 2.12.

Sources are not available in deb packages. You must manually download them.
For example, to install the old stable release (1.0) use:

bzr branch https://code.launchpad.net/~wii.sceners.linux/wiithon/1.0 wiithon-1.0
cd wiithon-1.0
make
sudo make install_auto
