Just because Core Foundation is licensed under the APSL doesn't mean you can't link against it. The restriction is the other way around. You can use APSL code as you wish, just don't expect all changes you make (if any) to be rolled back into Darwin.

As far as the FSF, their line is if it isn't GNU it's BAD. They're very political.

I think you're manifesting your own prejudice here. Actually, the gnu.org website recommends several licenses: GPL (of course), BSD "without the obnoxious advertising clause", MIT/X11, etc., and leaves to the developer the final decision.

Of course it recommends the GPL, and it points out what, according to the FSF philosophy, are flaws in the other licenses, but it never says anywhere "Use the GPL or you're evil". But you can't really criticize them for asking people to try to be compatible to the GPL.
