Tren,
that shouldn't be a problem because the default installation directory for
shared libraries is /lib which belongs to the root directory. LVM tools just
access any shread libraries from there unless you use the --libdir configure
option to chosse a different one.

If you are not able to mount the root filesystem (no matter on which block 
device including a logical volume it sits) you are in trouble anyway ;-)
