Forum .LRN Q&A: Re: Add a new portlet
<parameter datatype="string" min_n_values="1" max_n_values="1" name="default_user_portal_applets" default="dotlrn_dotlrn,dotlrn_calendar,dotlrn_

This is from dotlrn/dotlrn.info, but of course on an already installed site you would use the site map to edit the parameter. There are several of them that list applets and I'm not sure which one(s) you need to update. Doing all of them is probably safe.
