ltrace is a library call tracer, i.e. a debugging tool which prints out a trace of all the dynamic library calls made by another process/program.
It also displays system calls, as well as 'strace', but strace still does a better job displaying arguments to system calls.
The program to be traced need not be recompiled for this, so you can use it on binaries for which you don't have the source handy.
