The others that have suggested using portage tools to obtain the
system set are worth listening to.
The actual lists are in a bunch of files in your profile. However,
profiles are nested, so you need to check the packages file for your
profile, its parents, their parents, and so on. The files are also
commented and such, so relying on already-debugged code is wise.
