I'm surprised that it was written in GFA Basic. Thought that C is standard language for some Unix-like OS.

No wonder that it is not developed for many years. I would not worry about RPMs. Someone from here will make them available at demand certainly.
Installer may be different thing, because it is certainly much-much less code. But I don't see any contact link there.
Not really topic, but I find as more useful diverse improvements of TOS, or SW for CosmosEx, modern peripherals.
Firebee may be different case, but I really don't know how well TOS, Mint works on it. Most likely patching parts of code is necessary.

Replace "we" with "I" and your sentence makes sense.

So why stick with Atari and not PC?

Without memory protection enabled one cannot perform the emerge --sync, because it sooner or later dies due to memory fragmentation. Even simple "emerge" of the binanry package does take ages on 060 and plenty of RAM.
