I found two minor issues with sysutils/torque setup:
1. The binary package fails to create server_priv/arrays. When installing from port, there is no such issue.
2. /usr/local/share/examples/torque/torque.setup fails due to permissions on /var/spool/torque/spool and /var/spool/torque/undelivered. If both directories are set to 1777, torque.setup succeeds, but job submission fails. Setting both directories to 777 enables job submission to succeed. I'm thinking there should be a less risky way to make it work, but I haven't found it yet.
Besides these two issues, following the instructions in pkg-message in the order presented should do the trick.
I've been using torque successfully on a small cluster for about a week now. Thanks for your work on the port!
Install sysutils/torque and follow the instructions in pkg-message.
