It's a guess, but at this point:
chroot /mnt /etc/rc.d/ldconfig start

If that don't work:
/sbin/ldconfig -32 -s -f /mnt/var/run/ /mnt/lib \

Does that work / change the error or no change at all?

Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
    and never get to the software part.
