There is also Smolentsev and Soldatov's work using FitIT as well as 

G. Smolentsev and A.V. Soldatov "FitIt: new software to extract 
structural information on the basis of XANES fitting 
<http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.commatsci.2006.08.007>" Comp. Matter. 
Science 39 (2007) 569.



Though I haven't tried it myself, Grigory did give an interesting talk 
on to the APS XAFS
community some years ago.
