Here (GNU Emacs 21.3) "M-x apropos-variable RET system RET" lists

cperl-help-system
file-coding-system-alist
  Variable: Alist to decide a coding system to use for a file I/O operation.
file-name-coding-system
  Variable: *Coding system for encoding file names.
keyboard-coding-system
  Variable: Specify coding system for keyboard input.
sendmail-coding-system
  Variable: *Coding system for encoding the outgoing mail.

Nothing about `system-type'. It is listed (among many other items) with
"M-x apropos RET system RET", though.
