I second this request.  One of the uses of the C/C++ module for NetBeans is to write JNI code for Java developers and have all of their code within one IDE.  On the Apple platform, OS X favours Objective-C frameworks as the most current and advanced method of accessing platform features.  If you can't code Objective-C on the Mac you are missing out on a great deal of what the platform has to offer.  

I find it somewhat funny that Fortran is listed in the project settings (why not Cobol? Has anyone written a Fortran program since the 1970's?) and yet Objective-C, a language that is actually used as the primary development language on the Mac platform is missing.
