you can simply do a ldd over your firefox binary. It should show you every
lib needed. The mnost easy thing is to start with your destop computer
und start a second X (e.g. X :1) and then start firefox -display :1.
This will give you an impression what it may look like.

If you do not need the dynamic Xlibs you may consider static linking,
creating a HUGE binary but that WILL show what your need
