Compiling Open Grid Scheduler / Grid Engine from Source

If you don't want to install external dependencies (Berkeley DB, OpenSSL, Java, etc), then just follow the steps below:

 % tar zvxf SGE6.2u5p2.tar.gz
 % cd SGE6.2u5p2/source
 % ./aimk -no-java -no-jni -no-secure -spool-classic -no-dump -only-depend
 % ./scripts/zerodepend
 % ./aimk -no-java -no-jni -no-secure -spool-classic -no-dump depend
 % ./aimk -no-java -no-jni -no-secure -spool-classic -no-dump

Other useful aimk options:
 -no-qmon : do not compile qmon (useful if you don't have X11 libraries installed)
 -no-qmake : do not compile qmake
 -debug : compile with debugging info (e.g. -g)

For the list of aimk options, run aimk with "-help":
 % ./aimk -help
