  Start your command with
    strace command &>$HOME/tmp/run.log
  to get a complete log of system calls.

  Then extract the open() and access() targets with :
    perl -nle 's#^(?:open|access)\("(.*)".*#$1# and print'
$HOME/tmp/run.log | sort | uniq

  And look at the result.

  That may help, good luck.
