[torqueusers] NFS installed Torque/PBS ... security issues ...

In cluster with NFS context, I assume that folks typically install Torque as
root and so that the built binaries reside in a single location across 
the cluster
NFS mounted.  This requires the no_root_squash setting in the /etc/exports
file.  If for security reasons this is not acceptable, what are the 
other most
convenient options. I can think of a non-root installation or multiple copy
installation in a non-NFS mounted partition.  Both these have there short-
comings.  Is there a  better approach?

You suggestions are appreciated.
