FreeBSD Port: sge-

I'm looking into the SGE for my work and handling the scheduling of our automation processes.  The current setup works wonderfully but my boss and I are worried about the future since Oracle decided to not have an open source version.  I was wondering, what are your thoughts about the future of this port?

Also, I've been testing Open Grid Scheduler with FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE AMD64 and I've got it working but not the complete project.  I've had to remove qmon, add some libraries from my SGE install, and edit /usr/local/GE2011.11p1/source/scripts/distinst to get the install to complete but it's working.  Here's what I have so far.

./aimk -spool-classic -no-java -no-jni -no-gui-inst -no-secure -no-qtcsh -no-qmon -only-depend
./aimk -spool-classic -no-java -no-jni -no-gui-inst -no-secure -no-qtcsh -no-qmon depend
./aimk -spool-classic -no-java -no-jni -no-gui-inst -no-secure -no-qtcsh -no-qmon -debug
./scripts/distinst -local -libs fbsd-amd64 -- man common sge_qmaster sge_execd sge_shadowd sge_shepherd sge_coshepherd qstat qsub qalter qconf qdel qacct qmod qsh utilbin jobs qhost qmake qping qloadsensor.exe sgepasswd qquota

I had to add to /usr/local/GE2011.11p1/source/3rdparty/qmon/FREEBSD_AMD64/ and qtcsh to /usr/local/ogs/bin/fbsd-amd64/ to get it to startup.

For the environmental variables:
setenv SGE_ROOT /usr/local/ogs
setenv SGE_QMASTER_PORT 6444
setenv SGE_EXECD_PORT 6445
setenv SGE_CLUSTER_NAME p6444
setenv SGE_DELAY_TIME 120

And my updated path list:
set path = (/sbin /bin /usr/sbin /usr/bin /usr/games /usr/local/sbin /usr/local/bin $HOME/bin /usr/local/ogs/bin/fbsd-amd64/ /usr/local/ogs/utilbin/fbsd-amd64)
