Do you have Oracle Portal 10g? Want to move to SharePoint with full fidelity? I have scripts that will do exactly that! This would include:
- Portal Groups
- All pages with all "things" (URLs, content, files)
- Files with versions and comments

I'd be happy to chat with you about moving to SharePoint 2010!
Oh, and here are some interesting facts about Oracle Portal versus SharePoint:
- Web part zones can have web part zones (these are called regions and subregions in Portal)
- Workflows have steps for approvals (whereas SharePoint an approval is just a single step)
- Groups are global in Oracle Portal (SharePoint groups are limited to site collections)
- Oracle uses a concept of "things". Everything is one and everything can have other "things". This is *super* powerful notion and means that a single page can contain "things", where a thing can be a URL, a file, content, etc. SharePoint pages can only have web parts on them.
- Each "thing" on the page can have security for it, SharePoint doesn't let you do this
- Each "thing" has a version (no matter what it is), SharePoint doesn't have this
- Each "thing" on a page can have a workflow. SharePoint workflows are tied to list items, you can't workflow web parts
- Each "thing" can be optionally HIDDEN. SharePoint doesn't have a notion of hidden. The closest you can get is by creating a second list/library and setting permissions.
- Oracle has a built in notion of shortcut links (a GUID that takes you to the page you want to hit), SharePoint doesn't
So what saves SharePoint at the end of the day?
- Office Web Apps is the savior, you can't do fancy Office Document manipulation in Oracle
- Oracle Portal is *much* more expensive than SharePoint
