nano-tiny looks like the one for OP.  ldd says:

        libslang.so.1 => /lib/libslang.so.1 (0x4001b000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x4007c000)
        libm.so.6 => /lib/libm.so.6 (0x4019a000)
        libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0x401bb000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x40000000)

Which meets requirement one (only deps in /lib).  It lives in /bin,
which meets requirement two.

An added benefit (IMHO) is that it's distinct from the vi and emacs
families, so you won't get elvis when you want vim or whatever.  I'd
hate to try to do real work with nano, but that ought to be a good
incentive to get the box up and running optimally again ;)
