I wouldn't say that OSX is "just" BSD. It's actually based on the
Mach microkernel and certainly has a lot of BSD elements on it.
But it looks like the remote app is taking advantage of a lot of Mac-
isms, especially graphics.
It's is also a "universal binary" and will thus run on a PPC or an
Intel Mac machine.
I'm not a programmer but I'll bet you would have to redo all the
graphics stuff, probably using the OSX X-server for graphics.
I'd guess it would be possible to port, but it would not be trivial.
You might be better off starting from scratch.
