can you
" locate libwrap.so* "
or
" find / -name libwrap.so* "

once you find the location of the file what are the file permissions compaired to the other ones in the directory, are they the same owner/group?

Not an answer to your question but I'll toss this out there. We had trouble on a CentOS install getting FTP to work, we were under a deadline so we looked into SCP and it worked perfectly. So much so that we never revisited the FTP issue. I had forgotten about it until reading your post. SCP works. WinSCP is a free download client that works on Windows boxes. And no passwords or data is sent in the clear. A big plus from my point of view.
For whats it's worth I thought it worth mentioning here.

It looks like a SeLinux problem. Run
Code:
restorecon -v /usr/lib/libwrap.so.0
to see if it helps.
You can alos configure Selinux for vsftpd or disable it if you don't need it.

Regards

Already try locate and find that file yesterday,file permissions/group/owner is the same as others.
I also think it might be selinux's problem even no error show on /var/log/messages, will try restorecon tonight.
