If you just want to install PBS in a different directory for easier
tar'ing you can:

	./configure --prefix=/usr/local/pbs
	make DESTDIR=/tmp/pbs install

Then tar up /tmp/pbs.

TORQUE has never been "relocatable" on the filesystem, though you can
set the PBSBINDIR env var and the client libs will find pbs_iff.
