Loading an application doesn't require any debugger or library
functionality. An internal (platform specific) implementation of the
image loader is used to keep control within coregrind itself. Older
versions used a preload mechanism, which proved unreliable.

As for libraries, it's completely statically linked with an internal
implementation of a subset of libc. So no external dependencies
