What does

   file /usr/local/bin/fontforge

state?  This sounds like you are trying to run a 64bit executable on a
32bit kernel, or a 32bit executable on a system unequipped to do so
(missing essential libraries and loaders).  Or even have a complete
mismatch of architecture.

Looks right:

address@hidden:~/lilypond-git$ file /usr/local/bin/fontforge
/usr/local/bin/fontforge: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1
(SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.15,
BuildID[sha1]=1c01d759ac10c3f83d000f8e3d36cbea63f909e5, not stripped

It's 32 bit OS.  Any idea how to replace it with a 32 bit version?

I guess you should just get rid of it; the version from the repositories should be recent enough. Just make sure that /usr/bin/fontforge is used instead of this one. If you still have the directory from which this installation was built, a `sudo make install` from that folder should do whatever is necessary.
