Manual gearbox is pretty poor tbh and the whine is normal in 1st and 2nd. Try changing the gearbox oil- this might make a difference.

Don't forget you only want a GL4 or GL3 oil in your gear box & the correct grade is 75w90.

Admittedly if you're going to have to rebuild in the near future it wont matter to much if you put GL5 in but you'll want new synchros when you do as it prematurely wears them.

My recomendation would be to get some Redline MT-90 or Amsoil MTG from Opie Oils.

*EDIT*

Bit more info on diff oil here http://www.lexusownersclub.co.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=67162&st=0&p=721727&fromsearch=1entry721727
