We have no automatic build infrastructure at this point, so at this time we have no source for generating that info. We should work on creating the automatic build infrastructure for other reasons anyway, then we can basically get what you want for free.

It could start off as an optional feature provided by willing
maintainers.  Include a "manifest" file alongside the Portfile which
lists all installed files.  The ambitious approach would include
support for listing files installed by each variant.
