It's weird.

The front and rear suspension are tight. Bearings are OK. The brake calipers are fixed properly. CV joints are OK.

I am suspecting worn-out engine support (original from 2004).

Manual shift. I suspect it's the rubber in the engine/transmission mounts. On a cursory inspection they don't look that bad (they're not torn or shredded), but they are 17 years old and have probably lost all their "softness".

Yeah, that's another thing. I should change it, but the "clunk" comes when I lift my foot off the gas pedal. I haven't even begun shifting, yet.

Check the boots for any tears, also the u joint should cause a dull clunk as torque is removed.

Ok. Thanks. The last time I changed oil, I did have a look at the boots and they weren't leaking anything. I'll have a more thorough check.

I don't think so. I've got my hand on the stick when preparing to shift but I don't feel anything. The clunk seems to happen most often in the 2nd gear. Sometimes it happens in the 1st gear, but never in the higher gears.

-Hand on the stick.
-Lift my foot off the gas.
-"Clunk!"
-Press the clutch.
-Shift.
-Release the clutch.

Sounds like you have a worn dogbone mount bush, otherwise known as a Pendulum Mount, it is found underneath the car between the two front wheels.
