I am a bit slow to think of this but can the resberry PI run a version of EMC2.

I believe EMC2 is x86-only, though I may be wrong. However, I'm thinking of using my rpi (if I ever get it):

run all non realtime pins to r-pi gpios (things like heating control, stepper enable lines, fan control)
use small avr connected to the serial lines to do real-time stuff
modify pronterface to poke the gpios instead of sending gcode to the avr

See these links for LinuxCNC (formerly EMC2)...

LinuxCNC runs on ARM. It's been ported to a few ARM SOC's (arm9, 11, cortex A8 and 9) for multi-axis machine control.
