This isn't really an ITP since it doesn't follow the guidelines.

How about starting by telling us what portage is and why it would be
useful for Cygwin?

I actually use gentoo here and know what portage is but I think it would
make sense for you to explain why this would be useful.  Personally, I'm
not really sure that this is a direction that we want to go but maybe I'm
missing something.
