I am using sge 6.0u7 and have the default PE like this:
$ qconf -sp make
pe_name           make
slots             999
user_lists        NONE
xuser_lists       NONE
start_proc_args   NONE
stop_proc_args    NONE
allocation_rule   $round_robin
control_slaves    TRUE
job_is_first_task FALSE
urgency_slots     min

When I test the PE with the following qmake command on the standard
gnupg sources everything looks fine until I get the following error:
The environment (PATH, etc.) is setup correctly (I hope).

gnupg-1.4.1$ qmake -verbose -cwd -l arch=lx24-x86 -pe make 2 -- 2>&1

gcc: -c: line 2: syntax error: unexpected end of file
/opt/sge-root/utilbin/lx24-x86/rsh exited with exit code 0
reading exit code from shepherd ... 2
qmake[2]: *** [fileutil.o] Error 2
qmake[2]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
waiting for child failed: timeout

When I look at the output a little further up there are more of the
"waiting for child failed: timeout" statements.

The first one looks like this:

Does anyone have an idea?
