2 ways to do this, you can look at the big ldap user patch, which
moves uses an external ldap store for the user info (and AD is just
ldap). Or, you could write some sort of export and sync tool to sync
the RT accounts to the AD masters.

You'll probably also want to look at using RT's external auth, and
having apache auth against AD. Either by ldap, or with mod_auth_kerb
if you're feeling slick.
