Apple's libobjc is only designed to work on OS X. I don't think porting this library would be of any advantage.

The same applies to most of Apple's CF. That being said, you should take a look at opencflite, which is a project that aims to port CF to other platforms. I'm sure the project's developer(s) could pull any new functionality from CF-744.12.

Apple actually opened its Core Foundation and implemented its
Foundation kit as a wrapper around it. Is it possible for GNUstep
to incorporate the Apple code, maybe with a branding exception on
the GPL (APSL is basically GPL but with a branding exception) or
forking it? Now I am trying to build GNUstep on top of Cocotron's
Foundation implementation which is known to be implemented as a
wrapper around a CF implementation. I am going to use some of their
code here.
