why /bin/sh is not found ?


hi every body

I got a very strange error

I am running redhat 7.3

When I try to install an rpm package, the rpm doesn't find /bin/sh and other programs, I am sure the programs are installed.
for instance:

rpm -ivh xforms-0.89-1.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
/bin/sh is needed by xforms-0.89-1
/bin/sh is needed by xforms-0.89-1
ld-linux.so.2 is needed by xforms-0.89-1
libc.so.6 is needed by xforms-0.89-1
libm.so.6 is needed by xforms-0.89-1
libX11.so.6 is needed by xforms-0.89-1
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.0) is needed by xforms-0.89-1
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.1) is needed by xforms-0.89-1
libm.so.6(GLIBC_2.0) is needed by xforms-0.89-1
libm.so.6(GLIBC_2.1) is needed by xforms-0.89-1
pub]# ls -l /bin/sh
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Dec 24 13:10 /bin/sh -> /bin/bash
pub]# ls -l /bin/bash
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 541096 Apr 12 2002 /bin/bash
pub]# echo $PATH
/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/bin/X11:/usr/X11R6/bin:/root/bin
pub]#


where is the error

thanks
