First of all, I just want to make clear that pbs_track is still experimental. It still has a few 
known issues and so I wouldn't recommend betting the farm on its correct operation at this point. 
When pbs_track is less experimental, we plan to document it properly.

As to leaving it out of the %files section in torque.spec, that omission was accidental. It is 
intended to be used by users in their job scripts--so the MOM doesn't use it directly.
