tor user,

  Thank's for the suggestions.  I actually ended up compiling the tor 
binary on a different machine with identical architecture, a fully 
updated Ubuntu machine (complete with the latest versions of openssl / 
libevent successfully installed), manually inserting the "-static" 
compiler flag into the Makefile located in tor-dir/src/or.  Then, I took 
the binary and simply scp'ed it over the this bare-minimum machine.  
This trick seemed to successfully eliminate the broken library dependencies.

Best Regards,
