As Peter said there few r-core members working on OS X me and Simon  
are in charge for the GUI at the moment, but Luke T. and Thomas L.  
have also mac.
I'll be happy to provide any help I can but this summer I'll have  
difficulties with internet connections.
There is no project file for R itself but there is one for R.app. R  
builds with standard ./configure, make etc.
In R.app you'll find a Cocoa class called REngine which you can  
probably look at.
