After a fresh install, running emerge -vpe world results in emerge wanting to add the following packages.

How can it need these packages all of a sudden given that funtoo is running without them right now?

I assume that you're only showing the "N" (new) items from the list. The 'e' option "Reinstalls target atoms and their entire deep dependency  tree."  If you have packages that were installed without the -D option to pull in deep dependencies they're now going to be pulled in as new.

The new ones refer to packages that are not present on the system, no? That means the stage3 tarball is missing all these packages, no? How does the system function without them?

it's because those are likely build dependency which are needed only at build time. to me, this list looks like it's a dependency list for a genkernel and it's deps pulled in. to tell for sure, add --tree to emerge arguments. this does not look bad to me.
