[Buildroot] Xorg questions

I'm trying to run an application under Xorg/X11. It needs (amongst 
others) libXi and libXinerama. I wonder why these aren't installed in 
the image, although they are present in the staging dir. The same for xterm.
If I manually copy those libraries to their destination 
(/usr/X11R6/lib), the application can't find the libraries. I thought 
/etc/ld.so.conf took care of this (it contains /usr/X11R6/lib). If I am 
in the directory where the application is "ldd" reports those libraries 
not found. If I go to the directory with the libraries "ldd" finds those 
libraries, but starting the application (startx /path/to/appname) from 
there does not work.
What am I missing ?
