FWIW, the GNU Autoconf application creates configure scripts that
automatically accept "without" and "disable" versions of all of its
"with" and "enable" options as negation operators. This is not Open
MPI-specific functionality.

This will likely be best; Open MPI will use the native Torque
launching mechanisms for running MPI applications, which has a number
of advantages for system monitoring and control.
