It's perfectly normal for a perfectly working system to not have that
file, and to have "failed" attempts to access it in a strace:

access("/etc/", F_OK)      = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

Perhaps you need to look at your strace a bit more carefully and
determine what the actual problem is.

(/etc/ disables searches for hardware optimised versions of
system libraries and uses the default ones instead. Or something like
that, it's er, underdocumented.)
