"Support" is a loose term, so that question doesn't have a precise
answer.  When it comes to active support, our general policy is to
give preference to GNU.  However, that is a leaning rather than an
absolute rule.  There may be some kinds of support in which we do
include some non-GNU systems; I can't think of them off hand.
