qpeek is part of PBS tools[1], which is under GPL v2.  The version in
the TORQUE contrib area must be ancient, because the current svn head
version has the following in its header:

# Copyright 2006, 2007 Ohio Supercomputer Center
# License:  GNU GPL v2; see ../COPYING for details.

Please send those to me, as I'm retaining PBS tools.
