It would not be easy... my only suggestion would be to sort the portal on a seperate field, the contents of the field are replaced to vary the position. Little up/down buttons on the portal rows change the sort value the replace the whole set of records to reorder them.

I got stared on a system like this (but not in a portal) as an exercise and it sort-of worked, the only problem was that after resorting the current record was lost and the user went back to the top first record. This problem could be overcome, but that was where I stopped.

Using Filemaker Pro 5 by Coulmbre & Price details exactly how to do this (I highly reccomend this book!).

Basically, you tell the relationship defining the portal to sort on a field called "sort_order" then you make up and down arrows swap numbers with the "sort_order" value of the portal row it is trading places with.

Obviously more complicated than that but you can figure it out or buy the book.
