With /lib and /libexec directories.

/libexec only contains ld-elf.so.2

and /lib these few dynamic libraries:

libalias.so.5           libformw.so.6           libncp.so.2
libatm.so.3             libfsid.so.3            libncurses.so.6
libbsdxml.so.4          libhammer.so.0          libncursesw.so.6
libc.so.7               libipsec.so.2           libpanel.so.6
libcam.so.3             libipx.so.3             libpanelw.so.6
libcrypt.so.4           libkiconv.so.3          libprop.so.3
libcrypto.so.5          libkvm.so.3             libsbuf.so.3
libcryptsetup.so.0      libluks.so.0            libtcplay.so.0
libdevattr.so.3         libm.so.3               libutil.so.4
libdm.so.3              libmd.so.3              libz.so.3
libedit.so.5            libmenu.so.6
libform.so.6            libmenuw.so.6

I have kept a few binaries static in /sbin to not inflate the count and have
to deal with the two pthreads implementations.
