pbs_mkdir patch

The checkpoint directory is made with the following permissions:
 *  install install_dir $PBS_SERVER_HOME/checkpoint 1777

But the security check for this directory is wrong:
 *  chk_tree_wrap -d -n $PBS_SERVER_HOME/checkpoint \

Error message:
chk_tree: Security violation with "/var/spool/torque/checkpoint" -
/var/spool/torque/checkpoint is world writable and not sticky: error #13:
(Permission denied)

the check must be:
 * chk_tree_wrap -d -n -s $PBS_SERVER_HOME/checkpoint \

The patch also include the fix for issue #199
