This generally means there's some sort of library problem. Try
running 'ldd pgp'; it should display a listing of the libraries needed
by the program.
(I'd imagine this could also happen if either (a) you had an a.out
binary from a *really* old Linux distribution, or (b) you had a binary
for another architecture. I'd assume neither of these to be the case

Mmm, Red Hat, the paragon of stability and usability. You might try
falling back to Red Hat 6.2; its libraries are more likely to be
compatible (particularly with Debian stable) and it's known to work
