the PBS_NODEFILE is created at job run time by the pbs_mom. It will be on
the compute nodes, not the head node, but if you are using LAM then
_DO_NOT_USE_ PBS_NODEFILE!! Compile LAM with TM support. Then do this in
your TORQUE job script
lamboot #lam uses TORQUE to boot the lam deamons, so you don't need to pass
a list of hosts
mpirun C .... #mpirun C uses all processors in the LAM environment, i.e.
all processors assigned by TORQUE
