Okay, I have Portage working reasonably well on Cygwin now. The changes 
I made mostly involve fixing places where root has been hard-coded to 
"/". There are a couple of other fixes also. I would like to submit the 
patch.

Where can I find a current version of Portage so that I can create a 
patch against it? Also, has the location for hosting the prefix tree 
already decided?

Thanks,
- Nimish
