Ahhh ... now, /etc/profile.env is there ! :-)

I don't know ... :-) The first thing I did was a ebuild of
glibc.2.2.1 and afterwards 'man' worked.

I *think* I issued ldconf by hand before to make man work,
but could not swear on that.
And /etc/ did not get updated by env-update,
however, the /usr/lib/gcc-lib/.... entry is in it.
/etc/ did get updated, though.

Great - the next thing I did, was ebiuld OpenSSH (plus dependencies),
and now I'm logged in from my freshly installed Gentoo box to another
machine to write this mail ;-)
