There was a graphical interface to portage named Himerge. The project
is not maintained anymore, but I know it was usable in the 2008/2009
years. The tool was convenient enough in allowing to browse in the
portage tree and control all actions of *emerge*, the command used to
manage portage . It was just an interface, with no feature added to
*emerge*. It was the graphical way to interact with *emerge*.
