I'm trying to get automated execution client installs working. When I run
the install, the execd installs and starts up, but the install process
hangs. If I run top or ps aux | grep inst_sge, it looks like it's
continually forking processes that are exiting:

[root@<removed>] ps auxww | grep inst_
root      9855 10.0  1.5  27456 26240 ttyp0    S    15:47   0:56 /bin/sh
./inst_sge -x -auto /tmp/local.conf -noremote
root      9653  9.7  1.4  27020 25836 ttyp0    R    15:47   0:55 /bin/sh
./inst_sge -x -auto /tmp/local.conf
root     17032  0.0  1.4  27456 25620 ttyp0    R    15:57   0:00 /bin/sh
./inst_sge -x -auto /tmp/local.conf -noremote

In my cluster, I have a master server that exports it's SGE_ROOT directory
as read only through NFS. Execution daemons mount this in the same place on
their system. I'm creating an local execution spool dir.

If I do an interactive install, everything happens properly.

Any advice?
