Current list of packages in portage using userpriv restriction:

app-laptop/tp_smapi
dev-db/firebird
games-board/gnuchess-book
games-fps/quakeforge
games-rpg/wastesedge
gnome-extra/gnome-lirc-properties
mail-filter/qmail-scanner (vpopmail)
media-gfx/gtkimageview
media-gfx/imagemagick (when USE=perl)
net-dialup/ltmodem
net-libs/courier-authlib (vpopmail)
net-mail/courier-imap (vpopmail)
net-mail/qmailadmin (vpopmail)
net-mail/vpopmail (old stable)
net-misc/icaclient
sys-fs/udev (when USE=test for udev-9999 only)

It could also be that anything vpopmail-related doesn't need
RESTRICT=userpriv anymore.
