Can nuoarchive run as a standalone binary or does it need a full software install?
To use nuoarchive you need both the
lib64/lib*.so files, you do not need the entire NuoDB software install.
.so files must live in a directory
../lib64 from where the binary lives.
The simplest thing to do if you want to copy nuoarchive to somewhere else is to tar it up in a tar file like:
tar cf /tmp/nuoarchive.tar bin/nuoarchive lib64
Then untar that where you want it to live and run nuoarchive from there.
If you want to be even more specific you need these files:
tar cf /tmp/nuoarchive.tar bin/nuoarchive lib64/libicu* lib64/libmpir*
