[torqueusers] Torque: checkpoint/resume function

Dear folks, 

When I check "xCAT 2 Linux Advanced Cookbook", I found xcat has the 
following recommendations when compiling torque: 
CFLAGS=-D__TRR ./configure \ 
--prefix=/opt/torque \ 
--exec-prefix=/opt/torque/x86_64 \ 
--enable-docs \ 
--disable-gui \ 
--with-server-home=/var/spool/pbs \ 
--enable-syslog \ 
--with-scp \ 
--disable-rpp \ 

It doesn't enable checkpoint/resume switchs like "--enable-blcr" to 
support job hold/resume function. 
BLCR is the foundation to implement such functions. Torque admin book said 
the support of blcr is still at the beta stage. 

So, I want to know your comments on this function based on your xcat 
cluster setup experience. Is it worth a try or useless fucntion?
