It is buried into many makefiles. The make system is quite complex, or
actually there are 2 of them.
The makefiles support targets like "all" and "bigide".
Rebuilding from inside Lazarus itself uses Pascal code for basically
the same thing and has a separate configuration.
In future lazarus.lpi will become a "normal" project and can be built
directly. Mattias understands that better (I hope).

Anyway it is easy to see what is included in bigide because the
default installation package contains it.

Ok, you need the list of packages you installed yourself, in addition to bigide.
There is no such list I am afraid. After "make bigide" your selected
packages are marked differently in the Install/Uninstall packages
dialog, having a green mark in the icon.
I think you must just look at them and install one by one.
