Do you have "." in your path?
Is "." at the start of your path?

If so, `don't do that'.

  | now, looking at the "rm" it's trying to execute:
  | rm:      ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), for NetBSD, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), not stripped
  | random:riz  /usr/src/bin/rm/obj> ./rm
  | ./rm: Exec format error. Binary file not executable.

What does
	ldd rm
	objdump -s -j .interp rm

Is the program trying to reference binaries or a shared linker that
you don't have installed (e.g., in /lib or /libexec) ?
