It sort of worked at one point, but it currently it doesn't, I don't think.  There were a number differences in the GNU Objective-C runtime, but it may be the case that the GNU Objective-C runtime has been updated to use Apple's Objective-C runtime interface.  In that case, it would be fairly straightforward to get it working again.

Like I said, though, I think native interfaces are the way to go, so I personally am not very motivated to pursue this kind of thing.  But maybe someone else would be more enthusiastic.
