The problem is that installed software sometimes refuses to run, giving
'file not found', in spite of the fact that the file in question will ls
normally, permissions are ok, etc, and I can even cat the file.  This
happens only with certain files, for example two separate attempts to
install qcad professional.  Other software, loaded via normal Debian
routes, runs apparently normally.

Any suggestions to how to proceed?

Can you post the output from your attempt to run the software?

Here is an example:
   $ qcad-$ ls
   bin doc examples fonts library patterns qcad qm README scripts
   $ ./qcad
   bash: ./qcad: No such file or directory

showing that it even happens when in the same diectory. And, yes, the
file qcad is world executable.

What's the output of:

ls -l qcad


head -n3 qcad
