The .spec file in the source tree has a number of issues. I don't
recommend it. The code has a confusing and inappropriate hardcoding of
RPM macro values based on the settings from the ./configure operation,
and does not use the '%_var' or '%_bindir' values of normal RPM's to
control them. This makes resetting your Torque homedir, or
documentation location for your particular OS, rather difficult. It
also has woven in some under-tested support for compiling in DRMAA

I've given up on it, and tried porting the 2.4.10 SRPM to version
2.4.11. That works well, and includes configuration files and sensible
hooks for graphical tools, and for compiling the "doc" package as a
"noarch" RPM, if your RPM version can deal with that. I'll post it if
you like.
