With the new config variable
the user can specify an 'egrep' pattern what programs
(i.e. files in a /bin/ or /sbin/ directory) where the 'ldd' test in
build/default/980_verify_rootfs.sh reports 'not found' libraries
are non-fatal so that those programs in the recovery system
do not lead to an Error abort of "rear mkrescue/mkbackup".

This is a generic method so that the user can avoid issues
in particular with third-party backup tools that soemtimes
have unexpected ways to use their specific libraries like
https://github.com/rear/rear/issues/1533 (for TSM) and
https://github.com/rear/rear/pull/1560 (for FDR/Upstream).

I consider it as a "minor bug" when there is no generic method
in ReaR where the user can overrule an automatism in ReaR
and as an "enhancement" when such a method is added.
