creating sym-links to fedora /usr/lib

i recently wanted to install evince.i do not have gnome(i have xfce and
kde).i installed all evince dependencies except libgnomeui.
when  i saw the (pretty long)dependency list of libgnomeui(since i dont have
gnome) and the shortage of space on my system,i thought about using fedora's
libgnomeui library.
problem is that libgnomeui is itself dynamically linked to a host of other
shared libs,some of which do not exist on my system.

running an ldd on fedora's libgnomeui showed this

/mnt/sda3/usr/lib/ =>  (0xffffe000) => not found => /usr/lib/ (0xb7e04000) => /lib/ (0xb7df0000) => /lib/ (0xb7dc5000) => not found => /usr/lib/ (0xb7dad000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7d88000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7aa3000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7a26000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7a0d000) => /usr/lib/ => /usr/lib/ => /usr/lib/ (0xb797e000) => not found => not found => /usr/lib/ (0xb7944000) => not found => not found => /usr/lib/ (0xb7909000) => not found => /lib/ (0xb78e4000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb78e0000) => /lib/ (0xb78dc000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb78d8000) => not found => /usr/lib/ (0xb7850000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7830000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7826000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb780e000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7806000) => /lib/ (0xb77f3000) => /lib/ (0xb76d2000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb76a2000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7635000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7543000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7535000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb752c000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7529000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7524000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb751b000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb7516000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb74f3000)
        /lib/ (0x80000000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb74d2000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb74cf000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb74ca000)

i do not not have the  disk space to build all of the "not found"
libs.Willcreating symlinks to them in /usr/lib be good enough?or will
it screw up the
system  later?
