If you're running recent unices you have something like /etc/nsswitch.conf.
The order specified for the key "hosts" is honoured if you are using
standard libc lookup functions.
I don't think torque is sending out direct queries. A quick grep -R confirms
this (multiple gethostname() and gethost*() calls).
So a hosts file should suffice. I use nscd.
