According to the messages above it seems that "awk", "dirname", "grep"
and other standard commands are reporting problems.  From that, I would
deduce that "./CmapTools" is a script.  If you can run those commands
outside of the script...then there is nothing wrong with those
commands....but something in the script, probably an environment
variable changing the way things are working.
