OH!!! <sfx>smackself! smackself!</sfx> that 29: indicates the line where the 
error is occurring... it is using the variable $prog which is set as

[line 20] prog="barnyard2"

with no path and i suspect that barnyard2 is also not in your path... so adjust 
the above prog= line to include the path to where your barnyard2 binary is installed

eg: prog="/opt/bin/barnyard2/barnyard2"

(the above made up out of thin air!)

and then try it again...
