in the stage when you build your final: not to my mind, you only
have to assure that the libraries needed for the "essential" binaries
(root dir) also are in root dir - for example: your /usr directory is
separately mounted (or worst case just not) and the libs you need
are on it.

but I prefer to have a small static bash at hand in case I really get
into trouble.
