I always make sure to run:

Code:
emerge -p --prune world


from time to time to see what all is sitting around on my system. This will give me a list of all the packages that have multiple versions installed so I can at least clean up those (kernel source packages being the most flagrant offenders).

I'm wondering if there's a utility that will tell you what "orphaned" packages you have (i.e. any packages that are not required by any other packages), that would be a useful list.

Can't you also do

Code:

qpkg -I | wc -l


qpkg -I will list all installed packages, and wc -l will count them.

Code:

root@sardaukar red1917 # qpkg -I | wc -l

<nitpick>
Everybody who has less than 300 packages installed also has less than 400, 500, 600, 700, ... packages installed ;-)

Didn't know about that, thanks. Currently borked on my system though, looks like it needs your installed packages to actually be in sync with the portage tree you have :-\

Not everybody has gentoolkit installed, better safe than sorry ;) Besides qpkg -I will only count packages that have multiple versions installed once :)

You'll need to use

Code:
qpgk -I -v | wc -l


This will show all installed packages, including packages installed with multiple versions. So should give the same results as the find command.

Code:
qpgk -I | wc -l
585


Code:
find /var/db/pkg -mindepth 2 -maxdepth 2 -type d -print | wc -l
607


Code:
qpgk -I -v | wc -l
607

443

So how much is 443 software packages worth on Windows or Mac? No warez and pirated products included. Because nothing on my Linux box is paid for. And it's all legit.
