Question Big Brother 1.9i Help

First I must say that a coleague of mine installed Big Brother on my client machines.

But, when I try to execute a script manually, I get the following error:

/export/home/bb/bin/bb: cannot execute

When I check the local BBOUT log, I see the following errors:

/export/home/bb/bin/bbrun: syntax error at line 1: `(' unexpected
rt/home/bb/bin/bbrun: syntax error at line 1: `(' unexpected

Can anyone tell me which config file might be causing the above error, and how to recompile the bbrun executable, after fixing the issue in the config file!

Or, do I need to completely reinstall Big Brother?
