I don’t see the point of porting this. But if you want to, just go ahead. You will need clang with libobjc2 and libdispatch. You also need to implement a few missing classes in GNUstep gui like NSVisualEffectView and NSLayoutConstraint. The later might actually be a nice addition.
at a first glance, it is not really released. There seemed to be an old
version which from the screenshots was of the 10.2/10.3 aera, but then
new the "stuff" is not finished yet.
Maybe you are the only one wanting this, I never heard of it.
I would add: LaternaMagica, Graphos and GSPdf. I miss LaternaMagica
which I extra wrote as a convenient image viewer for GS and use daily,
while Graphos will improve for the next release (due really soon!). It
the least useful application of the 3 mentioned, but is some sort of
GNUstep demonstrator. The to-release version improves and I did use it
for some "real" work.
Especially the latter is really my standard Print previewer and works
like a charme! being a ghsotscript wrapper, it renders more reliably
than xpdf or poppler based things, it support PS itself best of course.

Emacs is a nut to crack to make portable, but on Linux the newest
release is a bit usale, but I do get issues, I still use the gtk version
Getting emacs really work with GNUstep and then make it also usable on
BSD would be a great achievement for 2018! I'd love it, I spent several
hours with only minimal fixes though.
