Don't use shared libraries :) Seriously, I don't know, this totally 
depends on the exact ARM device. A Thecus like Florian uses will likely 
run a glibc system, but a more limited device like the GP2x will likely 
use an embedded libc, uclibc is very common on ARM devices. An uclibc 
distribution in a directory could be a good approac.
