This is a fairly nebulous question and would really depend on your requirements, but I'll toss in my two cents.

First, to your comparison - Trac is a custom app written in Python. 

Second, you have to think about what a Portal platform and specifically what JSR168 and JSR286 buy you. The portlet JSRs define a framework for building modular components, which doesn't sound too far from what you need - but, coordination between components is limited - though much better with JSR286. The portlet specs also talk a lot about security and JBoss Portal is packaged w/the JBoss Identity API which you could leverage.

Though, on the other hand, developing in a Portal framework can also be restrictive and provide additional features you may not need. For example, does a theme framework make sense for your project tracking/mgmt software?

Honestly - it sounds like a custom app to me; if I had my choice I'd take a look at http://www.seamframework.org/.
