Install fdf2xsf.

Or if it's installed, ensure it's in a directory which is in $PATH.

Or when referencing it, use the full path to fdfsxsf. E.g.

{/usr/local/bin/fdf2xsf < ch.fdf > ch.xsf}
What is fdf2xsf? Typing 'fdf2xsf' in to Google currently gets only one hit, which is your post.

There is no such thing as fdf2xsf, not that I can find. You must install a program that can deal with these formats. I've never heard of these formats before.

Perhaps you could explain what you expected to happen. Since what you've written seems to have no logical meaning, there is an infinite universe of possible 'remedies'.
