dfstab is a solarisism.  What it's telling you to do is to install BLAST
in a directory that is shared via NFS.  You'll need to figure out how
you want to share files between your macs.  How you do it isn't all that
important, it just needs to work.  I generally recommend that a cluster
have at least one central server that could function in this role.
