Problem with STk 3.99.3 binaries for Linux

I tried to install the STk 3.99.3 binaries, i.e. STk-3.99.3-1.i386.rpm, on
my Slackware 3.1 Linux system (kernel v. 2.0.0). First I converted the RPM
archive to tarball format with the rpm2targz utility. Then I installed it
using Slackware's installpkg tool. Finally I changed to root the owner and
group of all files and directories (I needed this step because I didn't run
rpm2targz as root).

When I try to start STk, I get the following error message:

bash: /usr/local/bin/stk: No such file or directory

even if /usr/local/bin is in my path. Things don't change if I use the
absolute path, or if I make /usr/local/bin current and issue the ./stk
command. I have checked all the file permissions and the symbolic links,
and everything looks correct.

Any comments or suggestions? Maybe the binaries require a glibc system,
while mine is a libc one (but then the program should at least start and
immediately stop complaining about the wrong libraries; my error message
comes from bash instead). Any help will be highly appreciated.
