These interact with hardware
clrngd -> sys-hardware (it's related to rng-tools)
coldplug -> sys-hardware (related to hotplug)
All of the following are usable as text editors.
less -> app-editors (I consider it a read-only editor)
ed -> app-editors (You can use it on a serial terminal nicely)
sed -> app-editors
These all deal with file-system data in specific ways.
acl -> sys-fs (filesystem ACLs)
attr -> sys-fs (filesystem extended attributes)
dmapi -> sys-fs (XFS specific stuff)
dnotify -> sys-fs (detect changes in filesystem, maybe sys-misc)
All of these handle processes.
runit -> sys-process
minit -> sys-process
daemontools* -> sys-process
supervise-scripts -> sys-process
(maybe sysvinit too)
linux32 -> app-emulation (or maybe sys-devel with mips32/sparc32)
cracklib-words -> app-dicts (this is where all other wordlists are)
The following are not core packages.
gcloop -> sys-block (loops mounted as block devices)
subterfugue -> dev-util (strace is there)
tcng -> net-misc (it's an extension of iproute2)
ucspi-* -> net-misc (network interaction)
showconsole -> app-admin (with the rest of the syslog stuff)
tic98 -> media-gfx (it compresses images, similar to pngcrush)
biosdisk -> sys-hardware (similar to memtest86)
tmpreaper -> sys-misc
dchroot -> sys-misc
