comment econf fails when installing pth
Unfortunately, non of the provided logs shows the actual error. A @Mat already pointed out, there should be another log somewhere in /var/tmp/portage/dev-libs/pth-2.0.7-r3/ that contains the error. Hint: Try installing wgetpaste and once you located the missing log, that has to exists, you can use this tool to paste the log.

comment Is there a way to prevent emerge --sync from deleting files from the portage tree?
There is a reason this ebuild got deleted from the main tree. What do you get from keeping those ebuilds? Remember that you can resurrect any file that ever in the tree from sources.gentoo.org

comment How to load a module in Gentoo?
Module binaries are located in /lib/modules/<kernel-version>/ and not in /sys/module/. The way you load a module is in no way different then in other distributions.

comment How can I query for obsolete/outdated installed packages (ebuilds) on Gentoo?
Of course, any other tool besides eix that does the job is also ok.

Thanks for your answer. eix-test-obsolete is a great tool, but I think what I really want are the eix parameters that lists all packages that fall into 1. or 2.

comment Why do I only get 100mbit on my Asus GigaX1005?
You seem to be are right. I bought the switch some time ago and assumed because of its name that its gigabit capable. Also the "Advertised link modes" supported my assumption.
