OK, nifty.  Would you be interested in looking into this?  The first step would
be to port Portage to HURD.  You'd need to port python if it isn't yet available
on HURD, but that's about it.  The next step would be to create a bunch of ebuilds,
and the third step would be to rebuild a complete system using portage.
