Unfortunately, I do not think anyone other than Charles Gauthier
and the other folks at NRC have ever played with RTEMS and DejaGNU.
This may be a good opportunity to educate ourselves.

I HIGHLY recommend playing with GNAT on simulators until the initial
kinks are worked out.  I believe the SPARC/ERC32, PowerPC/PSIM, and
MIPS/JMR3904 simulators should all be perfectly capable of 
executing the ACATS.
