I did the ACE/TAO port.  I had sponsorship to get the port compiling
and submitted.  I did not get to do any testing.  :(

I thought the port of TAO was pretty straightforward.  I wrote
VERY, if anything, that was RTEMS specific.  I mostly dealt with
ACE/TAO configuration and Makefiles.

I pulled a neat trick and set things up so the ACE/TAO Makefile 
system extracts the information it requires from the RTEMS
application Makefiles.  So if you set RTEMS_MAKEFILE_PATH, it
should extract everything.  If the current version (may still
be beta) of ACE/TAO does not include a README specific to
RTEMS, post to the list and I will find my notes.
