The system list will be in your profile, which is /supposed/ to be the
directory pointed to by the /etc/make.profile symlink.  Normally, that
symlink will point to somewhere in the portage tree, under profiles, which
would mean a subdir of /usr/portage/profiles (typically
/usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/amd64/2005.1 or something similar), if
you haven't customized the path to your $PORTDIR.

Assuming the symlink is pointing to the correct spot in your portage tree,
if the spot (or your entire portage tree) is somehow empty, an emerge sync
should correct the issue.

Assuming  /usr/portage is still there, perhaps your /etc/make.conf or the
symlink mentioned above got deleted or corrupted.
