      Description

      If the user's executable is missing or otherwise unable to run, kickstart prints the error message

      kickstart[4156952]: pegasus-kickstart.c[673]: FATAL: The main job specification is invalid or missing.

      This is not helpful to the non-expert user. Something more human-readable like

      "The executable /path/to/program cannot be found, please check that the executable is available at URL"

      would be more helpful.
