So what does a binary depend on? Use ldd:

bilbo$ ldd /bin/ls
            librt.so.1 => /lib/tls/librt.so.1 (0x4001f000)
    libacl.so.1 => /lib/libacl.so.1 (0x40025000)
    libc.so.6 => /lib/tls/libc.so.6 (0x4002d000)
    libpthread.so.0 => /lib/tls/libpthread.so.0 (0x40168000)
    /lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x40000000)
    libattr.so.1 => /lib/libattr.so.1 (0x40177000)

So how are they used? Use ltrace (not base):

bilbo$ ltrace /bin/ls
