Ok, it took me some time, but I figured why my rpm packages didn't
support munge. I didn't realize '--with munge' needed to be set in the
Makefile. I thought by doing './configure --enable-munge-auth; make
rpm' I was enabling munge authentication. This is not the case.

In summary changing this line in the Makefile:
RPM_AC_OPTS =  --with syslog --with scp --without pam --with drmaa

RPM_AC_OPTS =  --with syslog --with scp --without pam --with drmaa --with munge

Will do the trick. I still don't know why the other two options to not
use 'ruserok' are not working. Either way, using munge works for me,
so I'm a happy camper.
