Thanks, I'll try your solution.  What bugs me is the documentation
where the example says to put this line into maui-private.cfg:
     CLIENTCFG[RM:clusterA] CSKEY=banana6

This means that you can configure a new shared key after the build,
right ?  But what's the syntax here ?  Garrick said:

Garrick, could you kindly provide an *explicit* example valid for a
Torque pbs_server ?

No, I'm building the latest Maui on two different systems (arch=i686 and
x86_64, respectively).  So I need to use the same key with the two builds.
