comment disable touchpad while trackpoint is used
This is probably the right track, see "For instance to disable the touchpad (but not trackpoint) using xinput.." here. There are also instructions around for doing it via xorg.conf, but you won't be able to switch back and forth that way.

comment Organize local builds
There's also instant tea. However, I do not believe it can get any simpler than it already is -- just different. There's no point in "simplifying the directory tree". It exactly mirrors a root filesystem (on purpose, for hopefully obvious reasons), so should not be anything but familiar to someone who manages to open a terminal and type make. It is also as simple as a directory tree can get -- one level, and perhaps 2 or 3 folders that are actually used.

This is the smart way. What's the problem? If you consider a directory tree a hassle, what on earth are you doing with a computer that requires you to build your own anything?

comment Why is the Linux kernel 15+ million lines of code?
@JonathanLeaders As I think you've realized, the LOC in the source is more or less irrelevant. If you want to know how much memory the kernel uses there are much more direct ways.
