Angry removed the wrong package

ok, i installed slack with only the neccessary package which is a1, then i ran setup and installed the development package d1 so i know setup used to work without d1. Well yesterday i removed the d package with pkgtool. Now when i try to run setup, or pkgtool i get the error:
/sbin/setup: reset: command not found

the specific packages i installed and then uninstalled are:
automake bin86 binutils gcc glibc gmake ncurses readline

so what i'm basically asking is what was it i got rid of thats causing the error?
Also, when i had the packages installed, i installed the program nano which is a pico emulator. well now that i uninstalled those packages i'm getting this error:
nano: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: cannot load shared object file: No such file or directory
i'm guessing its the glibc, but figured i'd ask just to make sure.

I have the exact same problem. Uninstalled glibc and some other stuff, and now I can't even start linux. I've tried the slackware rescue disk, but that didn't help much. I'd appreciate any help.

Ok, now I managed to install the glibc packages, but I still can't boot the system. It reports that several files are missing.


Anyone knows what I can do without having to reinstall?
