This is response to a recent thread about SGE reporting incorrect load 
values for Mac OS X with sge-5.3p2...

After I installed 'openmotif3' and 'openmotif3-shlibs' on my powerbook 
via fink I was able to download the sge-V53p4_TAG-src.tar.gz package 
from the http://gridengine.sunsource.net site.

Grid Engine (including the X11 qmon GUI) builds cleanly now from the 
53p4 snapshot with no additional hacking or patches needed. (yay!). In 
simple tests on my powerbook the output of 'qstat' is correct with 
respect to host architecture and load average data reporting.

The qmon GUI is fine as well when launched under the Apple X11 environment.

The build was so easy that I suspect that most people will just roll 
their own distributions. The instructions are straightforward.

For those who just want the Mac OS X binaries for SGE-5.3p4 I've made 
them available for http download at: 

These are just the darwin/ binaries that are to be unpacked inside of 
the SGE_ROOT directory. Users will still need to visit 
http://gridengine.sunsource.net/project/gridengine/download.html in 
order to download the "common" and "doc" packages for sge-5.3p4.

Feedback would be welcome. If nothing breaks I'll see about getting the 
darwin package listed under the "courtesy binaries" download page.
