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.
