Actually provide a full explanation instead of pointing in the right direction (computer is better than tablet).

comment A tool for automatically applying RandR configuration when external display is plugged in
No need to poll. Just use a udev rule like this one: DEVPATH=="/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/drm/card0", ACTION=="change", RUN="/usr/local/sbin/triggerscreen"

comment How can I use man without less?
If you want to override a specific setting for a single tool you can always do so by creating an alias, a shell function or a wrapper script. Either of those would amount to: PAGER=cat man, for example: alias man='PAGER=cat MANPAGER=cat man'

Actually, it's good and by design that manpath.config is taken into account later. Both PAGER and MANPAGER are user level, where the config file is system level. If system level would take precedence then users could not override at all.

comment Changing my toolchain architecture (in gentoo)
Sorry, the stage3 also includes a libc. The most foolproof way would be to go the stage3 way. But keep in mind that this is expert stuff that the gentoo project does not officially support. It is way too easy to get wrong and to be left with the pieces. But technically it is possible.
