This seems unlikely to me, as this has apparently happened to some thirty different machines in a very short timeframe.  Recompiling and reinstalling does not help either.

My bet would be some form of filesystem corruption has broken the pbs_mom 
binary.   Is it installed from an RPM ?   If so then you should be able to 
use rpm -V $packagename to verify the MD5 checksums for it.

Otherwise check the MD5 of the installed binary with the MD5 of the binary in 
the source tree that you compiled.

Good luck!
