Maybe it's missing some vital library or somesuch . Try ldd, or if
that doesn't help, "strace -efile ..." to find out...
 for example, during transition from libc5 to libc6, you sometimes
did get similarly weird messages because the corresponding ld.so was
no longer found (the path to ld-linux.so.1 or ld-linux.so.2 is
hard-wired in the binary). I don't suppose this is your problem here,
though, as qcad-2.1 seems to be somewhat more recent...
