Well that is not a problem, there is no system wide X at all on this vmware machine.

That there looks like a build error.  One should never, ever, need to specify LD_IBRARY_PATH in order to run a binary in some location like /opt/foo.  The RPATH *should* be in the binary itself. 

Otherwise there is no promise that the binary will operate as expected.
