is the shebang line invalid?
head -1 /usr/local/bin/fastest_cvsup

and see if the program on that line is truly on your system:
ls -lF <program location>

The error above makes it look like it's the command line that's missing, 
but the shell will use the command line argument when the interpreter is 
missing.

Good luck!
