Like I said, I'm not aware of such a beast.  Some projects have their
own facilities, specific to the project (Cygwin and MinGW each have
such thing), but they are incompatible and cannot read each other's
metadata.  To say nothing of the fact that they are only good for
ports that are offered by the respective projects, and so are useless
for 3rd-party ports.
