Is this as soon as login or are you specifically trying to
run /usr/local/bin/grep? Have you installed anything recently and more
over, you need to run yum update to get your system up to date.

Sounds like something has gone mad on your system.

It sounds like when you've done a source code install, something has
broken on the non-rpm version. Try removing the source code version, run
vi, if it works then you've a broken source version install.
