I've tried to install a package with dpkg, with command like:
Code:
dpkg -i --instdir=/usr/non-portage --force-depends "package"

it worked with some errors, but it did something certainly - there was new files in /usr/non-portage. Then, I thought it is not a good idea, so I deleted /usr/non-portage and tried to uninstall dpkg - I've recieved command not found error. And yes, I couldn't locate emerge by hand, it was gone. I've tried to manually reinstall it using advices in http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/portage/doc/manually-fixing-portage.xml, but instead lib/ I used lib64/. Now, I'm getting various errors like:
Code:

stone make.profile # eix
eix: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
stone make.profile # eselect profile list
!!! Error: get_repos failed
!!! Error: Failed to get a list of valid profiles
exiting
stone make.profile # equery
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/equery", line 35, in <module>
    from gentoolkit import equery, errors
  File "/usr/lib64/python3.2/site-packages/gentoolkit/equery/__init__.py", line 30, in <module>
    import portage
ImportError: No module named portage
stone make.profile # gcc-config -l
 * gcc-config: Profile does not exist or invalid setting for /etc/env.d/gcc/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-4.5.4
 [1] avr-4.6.3 *

 [2] x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-4.5.4 *
 [3] x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-4.8.1


So certainly I've screwed something up - any ideas how to clean this mess?

Without knowing what you actually did (what package, exact command to remove the non-portage dir, ...), only realistic advice would be to reinstall. My random guess is that either dpkg (or the package) messed up the system config, or your cleanup removed more than intended.
