1) Do you have the _windows_ version of python installed which 
understands windows paths (That is probably a requirement)?
(for checking run:
 >>> import os; os.listdir('C:\\')
if that doesn't lead to errors, you have it installed )
2) If you have python installed as stated above run:
C:\>windows_python C:\kde\root\emerge\bin\ --fetch wget
and tell which errors show up.
3) post 'diff -c C:\kde\root\etc\kdesettings.bat 
C:\kde\root\emerge\kdesettings-example.bat' in the next mail.
