Take a look at the lout man page. If you installed the man pages in / usr/local/man, the command would be:

man /usr/local/man/lout.1

In the Output section, it says that you can redirect the error messages with the command line flag -e:

-e filename
     Direct error messages to filename instead of to stderr.

In the Cross-reference datatase section, it says the reading/writing of the cross-reference database can be suppressed with the flag -s:

    Suppress  all  reading  and  writing  of  the  cross   reference
    database;  other  databases  are not affected.  Useful when
    many simple documents that don’t do any cross referencing are
    stored in one directory.

I have never used either of these flags, but I think they will do what you want.

I use lout to pipe some data to it. Lout then generate the postscript
output at stdout but also -.ld and lout.li. -.ld is realy uncool
because I can't rm it without much pain. Is it possible to disable the
generation of this files or rename it to somthing else?

Is it possible to run lout quiet without the output of warnings to
