Trying to dig into the problem I found that .bashrc has been tampered
by a script of the installation process. This only manifests
when .bashrc is called explicitly, as it is done by mc start. So it is
NOT an mc bug.

...  but as the same tapering happened on two machines this tampering
may be part of the Gentoo installation system (or controlling scripts
of the installation). So please note that the problem resides within
the .bashrc script, if anybody else stumbles over this PATH tampering
on mc start. Look carefully at the quotes in .bashrc and double check
there pairing.

Sorry for the noise.
