When building torque, configure with --disable-spool. This will spool the
output/error in the users home dierctory, or in ~/.pbs_spool if it exists
(which I recommend providing, as otherwise the user is more likely to
accidently delete the spooling files). From configure:
--disable-spool if disabled, TORQUE will create output and error
files directly in $HOME/.pbs_spool if it exists
or in $HOME otherwise. By default, TORQUE will
spool files in $TORQUEHOME/spool and copy them to
the users home directory when the job completes.
