A few comments..

First, nice job, and thank you.
Second..  you don't need to change the name of the report.  We should keep
the same name, even though you're adding a new function.  This way people
with existing report configuration will get the new report functionality
Third.. You should base the report on the one in 2.2.x (or SVN trunk),
not 1.8.  1.8 is two major revisions behind and, well, there've been
lots of changes and bugfixes that would get re-introduced by reverting
to 1.8
Fourth.. You should try to reduce the white-space changes; it makes
your changes harder to read and audit.  Worst case you could just
send in a diff ignoring white-space changes (see below).

So far it looks pretty good...  Any chance you could make sure the
report is based on 2.2 and send in a patch without whitespace changes?
You can use "svn diff -x -b" to ignore white space changes.

>> Notes
>> - name changed to advanced-portfolio-sorted
>> - it is an update of the GnuCash 1.8.x advanced report, not the new  
>> report that is packed with GC 2.2.x.
