That's a big clue.

% checktrans -auto
Error: Unable to read sequence ''

% checktrans -filter
... hangs until you hit control-C ... or control-D ... because it is now
defaulting to read standard input.

Control-C will stop it, Control-D will say "Error: Unable to read sequence


% checktrans -nofilter

If that works, then look for an EMBOSS_FILTER definition somewhere.
