I looked around very quickly in $PORTDIR profiles and it seems to be
that buildsyspkg uses packages *explicitly* in system - it.e. those
listed in the profile/packages files. Python and openrc are not in
those files as they depend on other stuff that is. So they are in
system, just not in the packages files.
We'd have to look into the code to verify if this is the case
