This is now available in torque-2.1.1-snap.200606072052.tar.gz

It is documented in the pbs_mom manpage, but you can do something like
this in mom's config:
  $rcpcmd /usr/bin/scp -rpB

This also changes momctl to accept queries with spaces, so this will
  momctl -q "rcpcmd=/usr/bin/scp -rpB" -h $node

Btw, momctl got a nifty new feature that allows you select nodes by
  momctl -q ... -h :bob (for all nodes with the "bob" property)
  momctl -q ... -h :ALL ("ALL" is a psuedo property)
