Thanks Sean!

Nice find, I found the 'distmake on SGE' page here:


Are there any writeups around that summarize what benefits or what  
problems are avoided when going from qmake to distmake?

On our end we've been using a qmake wrapper script that looks like  
this for the Illumina pipeline:

... no SGE issues so far with this but I suspect our instrument data  
and cluster sizes may be smaller than the others posting on this topic.
