They're an offshoot of, and built directly on, the same system as the non-portable version, but each have a dedicated webpage supporting the portable version.

I'm guessing they just devised a customized installer that was set up with the notion that you'd be placing the installed package onto a thumbdrive or such, and not need any kind of registry hooks or the like. Indeed, you could install Portable Pidgin or Portable Miranda to a directory on the desktop, run it once to configure it the way you wanted, then burn THAT folder and its contents onto a CD and the next time run it from the CD!
WinUAE doesn't need that. Like smoorke said just create the empty ini-file and everything is independent from your windows installation There is no need for a portable install. Just trust me and StingRay We both have done that many times and it worked like a charm. (even without the ini file )
