serious emacs issue on Linux

I have a relatively new Linux compute farm I am trying to build emacs
for to put into /usr/local rather than /bin.  I can build it fine (no
errors), and when it installs emacs, everything looks great.  The first
time I go to run the executable, I get the error:

Exec format error. Binary file not executable.

And a file command on the file says:

% file /usr/local/bin/emacs
/usr/local/bin/emacs: ASCII text, with no line terminators

Can anyone help me with this???
