Well, I mean to really check all file accesses, not only the execution
of binaries.  It's not too hard to filter them out (both successful
and unsuccessful ones), then applying more filtering to remove
individual memory addresses if necessary, then doing

... | sort | uniq

and finally inspect the resulting list.  It probably also helps if you
choose a non-typical `--prefix` value during configuration while doing
so, just in case.
