Is /home just empty, or is it mounted on a read-only file system? If
you want to know the default files for /home, you can try creating a new
user and checking it's /home directory (don't copy from here, just use
it to know what you'll want). However, I'm not sure any /home files are
absolutely necessary. You definitely /do/ need the ability to write
there at all times (for lock files and such).
