copy many files stored in a file


I want to chroot my apache so i have to copy many files (filenames are stored in a file)

The file form is

Code:
open("/lib/libcrypt.so.1", O_RDONLY)    = 3
open("/usr/lib/libgdbm.so.3", O_RDONLY) = 3
open("/usr/lib/libgdbm_compat.so.3", O_RDONLY) = 3
So i want to copy all these files into the /chroot/httpd/
how can extract all these filenames from the above file and copy to the /chroot/httpd/ without receiving any error (directory automatic creation)?

I don't have access to Linux right now, but here are some guidelines:

- use a while loop to go through the file
- cut -d" to separate the dir and file from the rest
- dirname and basename to separate directory from filename
- mkdir -p to create directory. if it already exists there will be an error, just ignore it
- cp file

cut -d\" -f2

means the second field delimited by " characters. The backslash is required to escape the special meaning of the quote.
