@MichaelShigorin I dunno, googling "rear" sounds to me like a very risky proposition...

comment Can TCP provide more than 65535 ports?
@bryan Actually, it makes all the difference, and you don't seem to have read either that question or its answers very well. When WA claims to handle 2 million TCP connections (with 'simultaneously' strongly implied but left unsaid) what they mean is they've tweaked their server software and processing power to optimize response times so that none of said two million connections will time out before the last one is served. They're almost certainly all connecting to one single port on that server, though.

comment Can I disable all man pages?
I'm afraid you're probably stuck as far as the manpages themselves go -- they're part of the debs of the software they go with.

comment How do I automagically update GCC to a later release without upgrading my distro?
Still not terribly optimal, and I really recommend that you install the source-built gcc in a different path (/usr/local/ is a good call for this), but given the constraints you're under probably the best you'll get.
