Make sure that you are root and that /sbin is in your path or try:
/sbin/adduser username

Sorry, my mistake - I think it is:
/usr/sbin/adduser

you can add

alias adduser='/usr/sbin/adduser'

to ~/.bash_profile

The best thing would just be to add /usr/sbin to your PATH variable. If you su'd to root then try using "su -" instead to load additional paths
