 Okay, the first thing you need to do in debugging this is to get the
 script to tell you what exactly is failing. I don't know offhand if
 this is a csh or sh script you're having trouble with, but either way,
 you should turn on debugging.
 For both csh and sh, adding "-x" to the shell invocation will print
 every command as it is executed, so you can determine which command
 exactly it is. (I suspect that this is a csh script, but it either
 You may have to edit the script to cause the #! line to include the -x.

 That looks like a shell getting very badly confused -- it is treating
 switches as command names, and command names as globs. Again, doing
 the "-x" trick will help in figuring out what command is going wrong
 and thus causing everything to go out of wack.
