I've just had something very similar on a different platform, and think 
that message might be Bash getting seriously confused. I built a minimal 
test program on Solaris SPARC V8 and moved it onto a V7 system. I get:

$ file product
product:        ELF 32-bit MSB executable SPARC32PLUS Version 1, V8+ 
Required, dynamically linked, stripped
$ ./product
./product: syntax error at line 1: `(' unexpected

I'll continue that in fpc-devel where there's alreasy a thread on -i, 
-Cp etc.
