Maybe regenword?
Code:
gentoo_box ~ # regenworld --help
This script regenerates the portage world file by checking the portage
logfile for all actions that you've done in the past. It ignores any
arguments except --help. It is recommended that you make a backup of
your existing world file (/var/lib/portage/world) before using this tool.

Good luck ;-)
