On Linux afaik that points to a wrong dynamic loader, on
*BSD to a missing ELF ident section (since that is how most
 BSDs link binary to dynamic linker)

Using elfdump -n might reveal which programs have an elf ident section.

(and objdump has some options to view elf headers, and objdump -D can be
used to find the section's content)
