porting


Explanation:
'Portieren' has been coined as a verbal form to correspond to the use of 'port' as a verb in an IT sense. For example, refer to URL below, where 'portierungstricks' is translated as 'porting tricks'.
You will find a whole category at Yahoo devoted to 'Java-Linux porting project'.
