There is no need for a big group of developers to do this. 1 - 2 motivated and knowledgeable people for a few months would be enough for an initial port and then it's a matter of incremental improvements.
The numbers you are quoting sound too high IMHO. The problem with past efforts was that it was attempted by guys with no background and that won't work out.
