How to build kdeedu from scartch? (was Re: corrupted kdeedu-minGW-src-archive? )

Sorry for bothering again. As far as I read the docu, the only option is 
using emerge, since the other three are deprecated or unstable. However,
we are sitting behind a firewall, which allows (basically) only http- and 
ftp-traffic via a squid-proxy. As far as I remember emerge/portage needs
rsync as well. (Not speaking about the svn access to get emerge initially).

Hence, are there any options to use emerge through such a firewall (gentoo-emerge
has a webrsync. But this is a bash script, presumable not running on Windows).

But maybe there is a shorter way. We have already basic KDE installation
done using kdewin-installer-gui. This installation includes the sources of kdeedu.
All we need is to recompile kdeedu (and kturtle in particular) with our
modified sources. Unfortunately (but not unexpected) the Linux way of 
 	cmake; make; make install
doesn't work in the DOS-prompt. Maybe there is just a little thing we just missed.

Thanks in advance.
