You mean that it is not used to boot a VM but a real machine?

Possiblly I'll understand what you mean in future :)

I think such image will be useful to demonstrate what is minibsd ...

You can specify the version of shared libraries as follows for example:

  (with LDPATH=/xxx/lib if necessary)

or you can directory specify the path of them as this for example:

It should be in a directory listed in LIBPATH.  The recommended directory
is LIBDIR of which default is DGROOT/lib/, where DGROOT is determined by
the owner of DeleGate, like "/usr/home/delegate/delegate/lib/" for a user
name "delegate" for example.
