Last year I took the code of dunit (version 5.02, I think) and
changed it so that the testframework unit and the texttestrunner
work. I still miss some features, such as saving settings and error
trace back. I don't know if I can give those units to you as I don't
understand the licence very well. The code is based on dunit, but I
wouldn't want to call it dunit anymore, because I amputated so much. 
Last week I give a try to make the guitestrunner compile and run.
I had the following problems:
- AFAIK, Actions are not fully implemented in the LCL.
- I ran into a compiling problem, I had no solution for: 
 Error: Symbol can't be published, can be only a class"
The only reference on the mailinglist told it was possibly a compiler
bug and that you should retry with fpc 1.1. Unfortunately 1.1 is not
stable enough this week, due to the reorganization of the linux, unix
and unixbase units.
