2 GB for a /usr partition looks quite small to me, but may by okay for a
small installation. But to increase the number of inodes, you have backup
/usr, re-create the partition with more inodes, and copy the stuff back.

If you do not want to do so, you could move things to your home partition.
I'd move /usr/portage first (and change the location in make.conf), that
has many small files eating up many inodes. And if space is still getting
small, just move other things like/usr/src, and set a symlink so /usr/src
is still a valid path.

Oh, and please:
- Do not hijack threads.
- Do not quote stuff that has absolutely no relevance, like the
original posting you replied to, instead of starting a new one.
