its a command that comes with rancid.  my guess is one of

- you copied rancid from another machine and missed it
- the pre-built package you installed is broken
- you copied rancid.conf from another machine and its PATH doesnt match,
  so it cant find par.
- you deleted it somehow
- you're using an old version of rancid, when par was a perl script, and
  the interpretter line is wrong
- par lacks executable mode bits
