Trouble with Export

I am working with Mathematica 4.0 for students on a Linux (SuSE Linux 8.0). 
All works fine but now I wanted to generate an animated gif with help of 
Export, which worked well under older Linux versions.

Now the same file which worked earlier produces errors:

Export["schwing.gif", schwing, "GIF"]

LinkConnect::"linkc": "\!\(\[LeftSkeleton] 1 \[RightSkeleton]\) is dead; \
attempt to connect failed."


Also a dialogue box appears with

sh: /usr/local/mathematica/SystemFiles/Converters/Binaries/Linux/GIF.exe: No 
such file or directory
sh: /usr/local/mathematica/SystemFiles/Converters/Binaries/Linux/GIF.exe: No 
such file or directory

The files are at the place and are executable etc. But if one tries to 
execute them always this "No such file or directory" error message appears.

Does anyone know what to do?

Thank you in advance!
