For Debian/Ubuntu you can get a list of the files installed by all the .debs (still) installed like this:

dpkg -L $(dpkg --list | awk /^ii/' {print $2}')
But what about things like config files, which were installed with the debs, but changed later? I'd take a backup of everything just to be safe.
