Joe Dolson has explicitly tested WordPress against it. He gave a  
presentation on his results at Accessing Higher Ground last year -  
roughly: there's work to do but it isn't a complete mess.

I have done occasional testing with it too. It's a big job for a  
moderately complex bit of software - you need to know WCAG backwards or it  
takes forever looking things up, and knowing the software reasonably well  
is important.

I know of others over the years who have done this sort of thing. But  
sadly few people ask about it, and without demand, supply tends not to  
appear...

cheers
