Yes Emerge is the correct tool to get a new application to build on Windows.

If you have already looked at emerge you will know that emerge contains build 
recipes (portage) for the applications. You might want to take an existing 
one like the portage file for amarok, copy it into a new directory e.g. 
(extragear/armour) rename it to armour.py and change the targets (download 
location) and dependencies accordingly. You only need one defaultTarget.

Then emerge armour should try to built it (compile errors might of course 
occur if you are the first one to build something for windows)

You should join #kde-windows on freenode irc response to questions is much 
quicker in there :)

Have fun
