The good news:
there is a tool written in Java that is open source, and now includes 
the ability to add interview questions such as whether a particular alt 
or longdesc really does match the image it is used for, and store the 
results for future testing. (This functionality is a demo, developed as 
a student project - but I am hoping that like the tool as a whole it can 
be further developed).

The neutral? news:
The tool comes from the Rainbow lab at ESSI in France, although the 
interface is written in english.

The bad news:
I don't think it is available at the moment due to an administrative 
problem. I am trying to get this resolved as fast as possible. I don't 
know if it works in Linux, but being Java it should. I doubt the 
interface was designed for accessibility. But I could be wrong.
