  Chessical: In the Selected Games of Lajos Portisch (Varnusz,Batsford 1979), it states:

<14.Rgh1!> The purpose of the innovation is twofold; on one hand it takes into account the later attack on the <h5> bishop, on the other hand, it defends in time against the disconcerting manoeuvre of the Black Q to <d7> then <h3>.

<15...c6?> this manoeuvre of breaking up the centre is characteristic of this variation but, because of White's next move, this is no longer good.
