Well, i got "the solution"

The reason was pretty simple... (as often...) 
In fact, the << cp `ldd $TORCHROOT/tor/bin/tor | awk '{print $3}'` 
$TORCHROOT/lib >> command didn't copy on of the essential librarie in 
the lib directy, i had to locate it then copy it myself into the lib dir.
Thx anyway for tips.
